Product Description
Franz Werfel's world renowned classic and award winning novel is the story of one man: Gabriel Bagradian, and of one people: The Armenians. It is the courageous account of their fight for freedom and survival during the 1914 Turkish onslaught, the first Holocaust of the 20th century. As an internationally successful Paris-based businessman, Gabriel has returned home to Armenia. What starts out as an idyllic trip turns into a nightmare as he and his family get caught up in one of the darkest, yet most heroic chapters in human history. The Turkish government has embarked on a policy that will eventually lead to the massacre of 1.6 million Armenians. The choice for Gabriel is clear: to fight, and to fight he does. A brilliant military tactician, he leads his fellow Armenian freedom fighters to the top of Mount Musa Dagh which could well become their burial ground. But, from their high ground, Gabriel and his rag-tag band of warriors, against all odds, battle the Turks to a standstill. With food, water, ammunition and time running short, their position mercilessly pounded by artillery, they wage a valiant battle that rages for 40 bloody days. At last, on the fortieth day, help arrives. French warships fire upon Turkish position, forcing the Turks to retreat and the survivors of Musa Dagh live to tell their courageous story. Running time 145 minutes.
