New Discoveries from the Film Shoah
Live Digital Program

In his landmark 9½-hour film, Shoah, Claude Lanzmann used just a small fraction of the 230 hours of known footage, leaving out some of the most poignant insights from Holocaust survivors, witnesses, and perpetrators.

For more than two decades the Museum has pursued an ambitious project to preserve the outtakes, digitize them, and put them online. With that project complete, historians are making new discoveries about survivors' optimism and extraordinary will to survive.

Join a conversation with Museum experts about the film, Lanzmann's motivations, and the new insights on this history.

WHEN: Wednesday, May 13, 9:30 a.m. ET
WHERE:
Watch live at facebook.com/holocaustmuseum and join in the conversation using #USHMM and #AskWhy.
