Shoah 1985 Criterion Collection
“I can’t believe I'm here”, utters Simon Srebnik, the devastated survivor that Claude Lanzmann’s landmark Holocaust documentary Shoah first introduces us to. Brought back to the grounds of the death camp from which he miraculously escaped forty years earlier, the man is confronted with a past that clearly has faded more from the physical world than his mental one. Watching him as he combs over the area that once served as his prison and listening as he recollects the details of the camp, one gets a true appreciation of the impact that Simon’s ordeal has had on his mindset. In Shoah, a nine-and-a-half hour opus that focuses on history without using any archival footage at all, it’s the world of memory and personal experience that effectively describe to us the infamous massacres of the past. Primarily concentrating on extermination process at Sobibor, Treblinka, and Auschwitz, the film is undeniably tough going, but by looking into the hearts of the people that experienced the atrocities, it gets at the heart of the horror itself.
