Narrator: Christina Delaine

In 1929, the Soviet government set aside a sparsely populated area in the Soviet Far East for settlement by Jews. The place was called Birobidzhan. The idea of an autonomous Jewish region was championed by Jewish Communists, Yiddishists, and intellectuals, who envisioned a haven of post-oppression Jewish culture. By the mid-1930s tens of thousands of Soviet Jews, as well as about a thousand Jews from abroad, had moved there. The state-building ended quickly, in the late 1930s, with arrests and purges instigated by Stalin.

Histoires de mort et d'humour - Alfred Hitchcock
French | 1993 | 318 Pages | ISBN: 2253048127 | EPUB | 275.49 KB

Lorsqu'il a entrepris de constituer ces anthologies, Hitchcock a toujours eu pour grand principe d'y mêler l'humour à la mort. Ici, une fois de plus, il réussit à donner une saveur incomparable à ce grisant mélange, en y incorporant deux « meurtres impossibles »: Le Pont de verre de Robert Arthur et Les Assassins n'ont pas d'ailes d'Arthur Porges, ainsi que quelques Variations sur un thème, dues à C.B. Gilford, et le tout vous est servi à L'Heure du perroquet, avec un zeste de Prophétie. Aussi, nul doute que, en refermant ce volume, vous pensiez comme Henry Slesar : «Compliments au chef!»
