Shoah: A Screening and Discussion

Sunday, November 11, 2018

9:00 am

Bldg. 200, Room 307 Map

Sponsored by:
Taube Center for Jewish Studies

In recognition of the 80th anniversary of Kristallnacht and the recent passing of Claude Lanzmann, the Taube Center for Jewish Studies at Stanford University will be hosting a free screening of the epic film 'Shoah.'
 
The film is arguably the most important cinematic documentaries ever made on the Holocaust. However, due to its length (9.5 hours), few people have seen it in its entirety. Our plan is to devote a whole day to showing and trying to make sense of this important film. We will begin the screening in at 9:00 am and will pause for lunch at 12:30. We will follow the film with a brief conversation between Daniel Lee and Josh Meyers before opening up the discussion to all participants. 
 
Here is some information on the film and its importance in these newspaper articles and a link to Daniel Lee’s interview regarding the life and legacy of Claude Lanzmann:
