Claude Lanzmann Shoah Collection

Film Collection | Accession Number: 1996.166
Collection Summary
Claude Lanzmann spent twelve years locating survivors, perpetrators, eyewitnesses, and scholars for his nine-and-a-half-hour film SHOAH released in 1985. Without archival footage, SHOAH weaves together extraordinary testimonies to render the step-by-step machinery of the destruction of European Jewry. Critics have called it "a sheer masterpiece" and a "monument against forgetting." The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum purchased the SHOAH outtakes from Claude Lanzmann on October 11, 1996, and have since been reconstructing and preserving the films (185 hours of interview outtakes and 35 hours of location filming). The Claude Lanzmann Shoah Collection is now jointly owned by the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum and Yad Vashem - The Holocaust Martyrs' and Heroes' Remembrance Authority.
