Shoah (film) – Wikipedia

| June 16, 2021

Shoah is a 1985 French documentary film about the Holocaust (known as "Shoah" in Hebrew[a]), directed by Claude Lanzmann.[5] Over nine hours long and 11 years in the making, the film presents Lanzmann's interviews with survivors, witnesses and perpetrators during visits to German Holocaust sites across Poland, including extermination camps.[6] Released in Paris in April 1985, Shoah won critical acclaim and several prominent awards, including the New York Film Critics Circle Award for Best Non-Fiction Film and the BAFTA Award for Best Documentary. Simone de Beauvoir hailed it as a "sheer masterpiece", while documentary maker Marcel Ophls (who would later win an Academy Award for Htel Terminus: The Life and Times of Klaus Barbie three year later) called it "the greatest documentary about contemporary history ever made".[7] The film was not well received in Poland; the Polish government argued that it accused Poland of "complicity in Nazi genocide".[8] Shoah premiered in New York at the Cinema Studio in October 1985[9] and was broadcast in the United States by PBS over four nights in 1987. The film is concerned chiefly with four topics: the Chemno extermination camp, where mobile gas vans were first used by Germans to exterminate Jews; the death camps of Treblinka and Auschwitz-Birkenau; and the Warsaw ghetto, with testimonies from survivors, witnesses and perpetrators
