Informationen zum Autor Franz Werfel was one of Austria's most renowned writers at the end of the 1920s. In the 1930s, however, the humanist, anti-genocide stance he expressed in works such as The Forty Days of Musa Dagh , as well as his Jewish heritage, attracted the censure of the Nazis. His books were among the many that were burned amidst accusations of conspiracy and decadence. In 1940, Werfel fled to the United States via France and Spain and settled in Los Angeles. Klappentext "In every sense a true and thrilling novel."-New York Times Book Review The heroic story of resistance during the Armenian genocide. This is the story of how the people of several Armenian villages in the mountains chose not to obey the deportation order of the Turkish government. Instead, they fortified a plateau on the slopes of Musa Dagh and repelled Turkish soldiers and military police during the summer of 1915 while holding out hope that the warships of the Allies would save them. An international bestseller when first published in 1933, Franz Werfel's masterpiece brought the world's attention to this devastating crime against humanity and the Armenian people.
