Podcast: The Making of Shoah’ by Claude Lanzmann

Shoah is a 1985 French documentary film about the Holocaust, directed by Claude Lanzmann. It’s over nine hours long and took eleven years to make. The film presents Lanzmann’s first-hand interviews with survivors, witnesses, and perpetrators across 14 countries. After watching Shoah”, Roger Ebert wrote: There is no proper response to this film. It is an enormous fact, a 550-minute howl of pain and anger in the face of genocide. It is one of the noblest films ever made.” The BBC as part of its Witness podcast series interviewed Irena Steinfeldt, who worked with Lanzmann on the film.

Steinfeld now serves as Director of the Department for the Righteous Among the Nations at Yad Vashem, Israel’s Holocaust museum in Jerusalem. This podcast contributes to the history of the making of this valuable documentary. You can listen here.
