Forty Days of Musa Dagh

Franz Werfel’s acclaimed award-winning novel at last on film. Before the Nazi atrocities of WW II there was Turkey’s war against the Armenians. This is the courageous account of the Armenians’ fight for freedom - a fight in which 1.6 million were massacred during the 1914 Turkish onslaught. This lavish production features big-name Hollywood stars in a stirring and action-filled film of the brave Armenians’ defense against incredible odds in their last hoildout - Mount Musa Dagh. Help arrived after 40 days, but the toll was great. 145 mins. DVD only.
