On Yom HaShoah, the officially observed day of Holocaust Remembrance for 2019, join the KHC as we screen the entire 8+ hours (503 minutes) of Claude Lanzmann’s documentary masterpiece Shoah. Claude Lanzmann spent eleven years spanning the globe for surviving camp inmates, SS commandants, and eyewitnesses of the Final Solution-the Nazi’s effort to systematically exterminate human beings. without dramatic enactment or archival footage, but with extraordinary testimonies, SHOAH renders the step-by-step machinery of extermination: the minutiae of timetables and finances, the logistics of herding victims into the gas chambers and disposing of the corpses afterward, the bureaucratic procedures which expedited the killing of millions of people without mentioning the words “killing” or “people”. Through haunted landscapes and human voice, the past comes brilliantly alive.
