SHOAH (Claude Lanzmann, 1985) is regarded as one of the great masterpieces of 20th century cinema. Lanzmann’s vision challenged all previous attempts at representing, and remembering, the Holocaust. The film became the bar against which all future Holocaust works would be measured and remains one of the most powerful cinematic experiences of all times. Yet this unique film has also caused controversy – raising questions about how testimony can be manipulated to meet artistic ideals

Speakers: Dr Ludivine Broch, University of Westminster and Associate of the Pears Institute for the study of Antisemitism; Professor Jane Caplan, Emeritus Professor of Modern European History, University of Oxforf and Visiting Professor, Birkbeck, University of London; Professor Michael Chanan, University of Roehampton.
