Filmmaker Claude Lanzmann’s epic Holocaust film “Shoah” to be screened in Iran via satellite TV

Filmmaker Claude Lanzmann’s renowned nine-plus-hour film includes testimony from concentration-camp survivors and employees about the slaughter of millions of Jews in Europe during World War II.

An epic French documentary about the Holocaust, dubbed into Farsi, is to be broadcast on a satellite channel in Iran as part of a campaign to promote understanding between Jews and Muslims and to fight Holocaust denial.

Filmmaker Claude Lanzmann‘s renowned nine-plus-hour film “Shoah” includes testimony from concentration-camp survivors and employees about the slaughter of millions of Jews in Europe during World War II.

The Aladdin Project, a Paris-based group, said the film would be shown starting Monday over the next several days on the large Los Angeles-based satellite channel Pars. Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has questioned historical accounts of the Holocaust, and called for Israel’s destruction.

The Aladdin Project tried twice to get a green light from Iranian authorities to hold a press conference in Tehran about the killing of Jews during World War II, but received no response, Abe Radkin, the group’s executive director, told The Associated Press.

“If the Iranian government agrees to broadcast [the film] on a public channel, we would welcome it,” he said.

The Aladdin Project has backing from UNESCO, the educational and cultural arm of the United Nations.

Lanzmann worked for 11 years on the film, which was released in 1985.
