In his novel The Forty Days of Musa Dagh, Franz Werfel dealt with the subject of the Armenian genocide. How did he weave together fiction and historical reality in the novel? What are the different ways that the novel has been read from the points of view of Armenians, Jews, Turks, and Germans? This volume addresses the issue of how the representation of the genocide in Armenia is viewed in today's context of European integration.
