SHOAH / Claude Lanzmann

 

“The word Shoah comes from the Hebrew language and it means destruction, annihilation. The film by Claude Lanzmann tells about the crime of the Nazis against European Jews. At the same time, this is a film about survivors and surviving against all odds. This is a monument to the victims and a condemnation of crimes against humanity.

For ten years,Claude Lanzmann worked on this film describing the tragedy of six million Jews who were murdered during World War II in the concentration camps, ghettos, in the streets and in the fields. Together with his camera, Lanzmann traverses through the ways by which Jews were taken to the camps, talks with survivors living all around the world today, with Poles who were witnesses to the deportations, with surviving criminals and a scientist Raul Hilberg who dedicated his life to studying the Holocaust. As the film envelops, we start to realize how the monstrous process of destruction of Jews functioned, from deportations, mass gas executions and in other ways, to the crematoriums and the scattering of ashes around forests, and the mass graves now covered in grass and trees.

There where law and history are limited, art is effective. This artistic action is not arbitrary, but systematic and responsible. Shoah is an impeccable film. Shoah is an inexorable film. The book Shoah is a special, fascinating experience. The words from the film are now sounding off on their own, without image, and opening in front of us are new dimensions of the crime by which mankind will always be disturbed.
