An Exhibition Dedicated to the 80th Anniversary of Franz Werfel’s “The 40 Days of Musa Dagh” opened at the National Library



An exhibition dedicated to the 80th anniversary of the first publication of the famous novel “The 40 Days of Musa Dagh” by Franz Werfel opened today in cooperation with the Armenian Genocide Museum-Institute and RA National Library.

Hayk Demoyan, the director of the Armenian Genocide Museum-Institute and Tigran Zargaryan, the director of RA National Library had opening speeches. Hayk Demoyan handed a golden medal issued under the “Gratitude” nomination to the National Library.

The historical novel “The 40 Days of Musa Dagh” describes one of the heroic episodes of the Cilician Armenians’ struggle during the Armenian Genocide. Thanks to this struggle and French warships, more than four thousand people were miraculously saved from the impending extermination. This novel is justly considered a monumental work the contents of which fully represent the Armenians’ struggle for self-preservation and the horrors of the Armenian Genocide in the frame of fiction.

The exhibition which was presented in the National Library includes more than fifty publications of the novel which were published in different years and in different languages and are part of the collections of the Armenian Genocide Museum-Institute and National Library.

The exhibition will be open until April 25.
