Het Woeden der Gehele Wereld is a 1993 Dutch novel by Maarten 't Hart.

It is about the coming of age of Alex Goudveyl, who is bullied by other children and protected by Vroombout, and about a murder that took place some ten years after the time of the German occupation of the Netherlands in World War II. It is the basis of a Dutch 2006 film, Het Woeden der Gehele Wereld, directed by Guido Pieters, and produced by Rob Houwer. Source: Wikipedia (en)
