Filmmaker Claude Lanzmann’s 9-hour film “Shoah” includes testimony from concentration camp survivors and employees around Europe about the slaughter of millions of Jews during World War II.

The Paris-based Aladdin Project, a group promoting understanding between Jews and Muslims and fighting negation of the Holocaust, says the film will be shown starting Monday over the next several days on the satellite channel Pars.

The group also has dubbed the film into Arabic and Turkish and wants to broadcast it to Arabic and Turkish-speaking audiences.

As a survivor of the destruction , 7 years under Hitler of which 3 1/2 in Vienna and the remainder in various concentration camps I must compliment that Shoah will be shown. It is the most penetrating and horror conveying video ever made. The director Claude Lanzman had the insight to let the Ukrainians speak and they divulge after the war their implacable hatred. No concentration camps and no survivors just the stark scenery of Poland and Treblinka the death factory. I wish the NK would be forced to view it.

I agree with everything you say. However, the NK watching it won't change their sick minds. These are sick inbred people.

I thought the same thing. This story doesn't make any sense. At the very least it is incomplete. Maybe they are showing it on the France-originated satellite channel. But almost nobody in Iran owns a satellite antenna and will be able to receive this program. Especially considering that such antennas must be installed on the outside of the houses and can't be concealed. And I can't believe that the regime allows even few people of means to obtains satellite antennas capable of receiving foreign programming.

If anybody knows more about this, please feel free to post.

Iranians have the internet too. If they have internet, they can download. And who knows how many of them will download the movie via the internet. Possibly many more than there are satellite subscribers there.
