‘Shoah’ playing in Iran


March 8, 2011 | 10:26 am

The Holocaust documentary “Shoah” is being broadcast in Iran.

The 1985 documentary by French director Claude Lanzmann was scheduled to be presented this week on a satellite channel and is dubbed in Farsi. Satellites are banned in Iran, but many Iranians have them and therefore could watch the film, which includes survivor testimony.

The broadcast is sponsored by the Aladdin Project, an independent, international nongovernmental organization based in Paris dedicated to promoting intercultural relations, particularly among Jews and Muslims.

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has publicly denied the Holocaust on several occasions.

The film also has been dubbed into Arabic and Turkish and will be screened in Turkey next month, The Jerusalem Post reported.
