Poet and dramaturg Maja Haderlap wrote a novel Angel of Oblivion (2011) which with an intimate poetical language tells a story about the meaning of the Partisan movement in Carinthia in Austria. The author’s memory takes us on a journey through the landscapes and time, a journey which changes the way and consciousness of the life of people living in the area of Eisenkappel. The outstanding importance and value of the novel have been acknowledged by numerous awards and reprints.
"... You know, the best thing to do if you’re scared in the forest is sing Partisan songs."
Maja Haderlap
