  1. I just posted my review of "The Forty Days of Musa Dagh" by Franz Werfel, a fictional account of the Armenian genocide of 1915. The actual text of the German edition is 965 pages, the English edition should be at least 100 pages shorter... an impressive and touching read that is really worth the time it takes to read it!
