YEREVAN — More than 200 German actors will read Franz Werfel’s “40 Days of Musa Dagh” at the Nuremberg State Theatre, German film director Christian Papke told reporters in Yerevan, armradio.am reports.

“We have planned to organize a 40-hour ongoing reading of that novel by 200 actors. It is good that the world is awakening again,” he said.

“Events commemorating the Armenian Genocide victims will be held across Germany this year,” the director said.

He added that a concert by a renowned Armenian opera singer will conclude the commemorations.

The German director said he doesn’t think that the society is now aware of the tragedy, adding that proper work needs to be done to fill that information gap.

“An informed society and its position are the most important, because in democratic societies it is the public dictating its opinion to the political elite,” Christian Papke said as he presented his country’s position on the Armenian Genocide.

Papke is the author of an Armenian Genocide film shot within the framework of the “Talking about Borders” project. The documentary “Armenia: Long Road of Shadows” will premiere in Germany on April 22, and will be screened in Austria on April 23.
