Tuning in to TV
Turkish television marks Holocaust with documentary
An epic French documentary about the mass murder of Jews under the German Nazi regime has appeared on Turkish television to mark International HolocaustRemembrance Day - the first time the film has been aired on public television in a majority-Muslim country.
The film has been subtitled into Arabic, Farsi and Turkish by the Paris-based Aladdin Project as part of its campaign to promote understanding between Jews and Muslims and to fight Holocaust denial.
“Shoah,” the Hebrew word for Holocaust, includes testimony from concentration camp survivors and staff about the slaughter of millions of Jews in Europe by the Nazis during World War II. Mr. Lanzmann worked for 11 years on the film, which was released in 1985.
Last year, a Los Angeles-based Farsi satellite channel broadcast the nine-plus-hour documentary in Iran, where President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has questioned historical accounts of the Holocaust and called for Israel’s destruction.
The film is not the first Holocaust film to be shown on television in Turkey, a secular country that is seeking membership in the European Union. Turkey also has its own Holocaust film: “The Turkish Passport,” which was released last year and tells the true story of Turkish diplomats who saved thousands of Jews by issuing them Turkish passports.
