The article presents an analysis on the representation of the Holocaust in the documentary film "Shoah," by Claude Lanzmann. It offers information on the annihilation of European Jewry by the Nazis between 1933 and 1945 which lead to the murder of 6 million Jews. It states that to understand the climatic influence of the film one has to analyze the elements of Lanzmann's epic film.

" 'Shoah' is a documentary film on the survivors of the 'Sonderkommando' death camp at Auschwitz-Birkenau. The words used by the survivors compel viewers to believe that all the unimaginable atrocities mentioned indeed occurred. 'Shoah' presents signs and traces as historical evidence and it indicates rather than represents history. Survivors felt responsible for interpreting history." [Expanded Academic Index]

"Claude Lanzmann's Shoah is a nine and one-half-hour film documentary constructed on the testimony of living witnesses. Without a grand theory of metaphysical anguish or ethical interpretation, the film's focus is on the interviews of Jews, Poles and Germans speaking for themselves. The result is a moving experience as they relive their experiences in the most momentous deed of the 20th century. Lanzmann's method of presentation, bits of evidence and interview, reveals the man-made hell built by architects of elimination dealing with certain logistical problems in creating a new order of the Third Reich."

"The films 'Beloved' by Toni Morrison 'Shoah' by Claude Lanzmann are both ideal venues for exploring the value of literature. 'Beloved' is about slavery while 'Shoah' is about the Holocaust. The importance of literature lies in the meaning of living in a world of language. The films explained this importance by tampering with the relation between language and the real. Both films brought to life the impossible and unspeakable and repeated past stories whose truths were significantly and intentionally altered to connect the past and the present to the discovery of personal identities."

"An analysis of Claude Lanzmann's film Shoah, which chronicles the suffering and catastrophic experiences of the Jewish victims of the Nazi Holocaust. Themes of silence, emptiness, negation, denial, and the apparent lack of soul or moral responsibility resonate throughout the film. Lanzmann interviews Jewish survivors, Nazis, and non-Jewish peasants, all of whom exhibit an externality that reflects the viewpoint of outsiders. The story of Shoah has no beginning or end; it is a boundless tale that searches for the human spirit by actively challenging human detachment from memory." [Historical Abstracts]

"An analysis of significant second-generation trends in Holocaust literature that developed in the 1980's and 1990's, and of art formats that reconstruct the past through filtered experiences and derived information. The two most recent outstanding works in popular media, Claude Lanzmann's documentary film Shoah (1985) and Art Spiegelman's comic book monographs Maus I & II (1986, 1991) portrayed Holocaust victims' memories through the edited eye of the producers, who extended Holocaust facts and visual images in order to create highly emotive histories. Lesser known works, particularly Henri Raczymow's Un Cri sans Voix (1985), translated into English as Writing the Book of Esther (1995), and Jaroslaw Marek Rymkiewicz's The Final Station: Umschlagplatz (Poland 1992, United States, 1994) take the concept of myth, legacy, and mediated memories to the more creative level of fictional biographies. In the 21st century, authors and artists may continue to pursue their fascination with the Holocaust via new genres that succinctly portray Nazi horrors no longer identifiable by eyewitness testimony."
