Around New Year 1935 Klaus Mann was working in the dutch exile on a large mankind-cantata, which remained fragmentary. The idea came from great german actress Therese Giehse, who played in Klaus and Erika Manns cabaret „Die Pfeffermühle“. The Edition Frank Albrecht publishes this text from the estate now for the first time. The volume shows the 27 pages of the original manuscript in facsimile and the transcription of the text. This first edition is limited to 300 copies.

The bookillustrator and graphic artist Inge Jastram produced a series of three original-etchings with portraits of Klaus Mann for this volume.
