Original manuscripts by Franz Kafka reportedly were found this week in safety boxes opened in Zurich, Switzerland.

More manuscripts reportedly are stored in vaults in Tel Aviv, six of which were opened last week.The manuscripts were revealed as part of a trial over the estate of the Jewish writer's close friend and literary executor, Max Brod.

Brod had left his estate to his secretary, Esther Hoffe, who died three years ago. The estate is now under the control of Hoffe's daughter Eva.

Kafka had requested that his manuscripts be burned upon his death, which apparently was not honored.
