    Considered one of the greatest novels of simple and triumphant religious faith to be published in the 20th century, how the The Song of Bernadette came to be written is an inspirational - even miraculous - story in its own right. In June 1940, famed Austrian author Franz Werfel and his beautiful wife, Alma Mahler, were on a desperate flight across France, seeking to escape certain death at the hands of the Nazi invaders. Franz had written many articles and given many radio speeches denouncing their tyranny.

    If you could sum up The Song of Bernadette in three words, what would they be?

    Inspiring, moving and perennial


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Song of Bernadette?

    I'd say that you are taken from the very first moment and can't leave it.


    Which character – as performed by Johanna Ward – was your favorite?

    She performs so well the main characters that it seemed I was watching and hearing them (Bernadette, his father, Sister Maria Therese, Peramal, the bishop, etc)


    If you could take any character from The Song of Bernadette out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Apart from Bernardette, monsieur le curée because his great heart and good sense.


    Any additional comments?

    The fact that Franz Werfel wrote the book as a result of such personal circumstances only adds more amazement to any reader: he not only was faithful to his promise but to his artistic conscience.
