This review is from: The Forty Days of Musa Dagh (Paperback)This book should be required reading for every student. Werfel writes an excellent in-depth novel about the genocide of the Armenians in World War I.
What is particularly chilling is that Werfel went on a lecture tour about the book in Germany just before Hitler's ascent to power. This did not prevent the German people from participating in the genocide of the Jews. Apparently, people learn nothing from history, even if forewarned.
