Shoah by Claude Lanzmann( Visual )

8 editions published between 1999 and 2003 in English and Multiple languages and held by 790 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The number of people that lived through the Second World War and the Holocaust dwindles significantly every day. Shoah--a Hebrew word variously translated as annihilation, cataclysm, chaos, or catastrophe--approached the tragedy of the Holocaust in a new and novel way: no archival footage, no newsreels, no black and white still photographs. There are instead interviews with ordinary people speaking in ordinary voices of days that had become ordinary to them: Jewish survivors, former Nazis, Polish peasants, American scholars, and others. Each person describes details which are woven together to present a Holocaust much larger and much more complicated than a viewer could begin to imagine. It is not a documentary, not journalism, not propaganda, not political. It is an act of witness

A group of men from the city traverse the rural Iranian countryside, looking for the village of Siah Dareh, following directions such as "turn left at the big tree on top of the hill," seemingly lost. The driver, respectfully called "Engineer" by the villagers, is in this remote location to record a funeral ritual that will follow the death of a woman reputed to be more than 100 years old.

And as he waits to complete his task, he is transformed from a nosy outsider into a reverent observer, seeing all the transient beauty and eternal wonder of the human experience in one poor, small, rural village
