Shoah by Claude Lanzmann (1985)

Yom HaShoah

Shoah by Claude Lanzmann [born in Paris, France, in 1925], the 1985 epic documentary on the Holocaust (khurbn eyrope, חורבן אײראָפּע, in Yiddish or Shoah, שואה, in Hebrew): Nine hours and 30 minutes was the result of over 300 hours of raw footage and 11 years in the making. Part 2 can be viewed [here]. This might be the greatest documentary made on the greatest evil perpetuated against humanity, whose machinery of destruction started with a profound hatred of Jews. You can also read a 2011 interview of Lanzmann [here].
