5.0 out of 5 stars Harrowing, Relentless but Essential, 5 July 2010
Claude Lanzemans masterpiece Shoah is a struggle to watch. Nineteen hours of subtitle's would be enough to put even the most determined off but Shoah is essential viewing for anyone wanting to catch a glimpse of what the greatest crime in human history entailed. Shoah portrays the holocaust through the aural remembrances of those who witnessed it. The harrowing accounts of survivors by the camps are set beside deeply disturbing remembrances of train drivers, inhabitants of villages that were 'emptied' of their jewish neighbours, and most shocking of all testimonies (sometimes secretly filmed!) of Germans who ran and participated in the death camps.

This is not easy viewing by any means, but for anyone who wishes to know more about the human reality of the evil of the holocaust - you cannot avoid it.
