Shoah by Claude Lanzmann( Visual )

186 editions published between 1984 and 2016 in 8 languages and held by 2,322 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over a decade in the making, this monumental investigation of the unthinkable: the murder of more than six million Jews by the Nazis. Using no archival footage, Claude Lanzmann instead focuses on first-person testimonies (of survivors and former Nazis, and other witnesses), employing a circular, free-associative method in assembling them. The intellectual yet emotionally overwhelming SHOAH is not a film about excavating the past but an intensive portrait in which the past is always present
Shoah : an oral history of the Holocaust : the complete text of the film by Claude Lanzmann( Book )

153 editions published between 1985 and 2015 in 19 languages and held by 2,251 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The complete text of Claude Lanzmann's film "Shoah". This nine-and-a-half-hour film was the result of years of research and the result is an oral history of the Holocaust that brings together a full range of witnesses: the SS officers who served in the death camps; the Polish villagers who tilled their fields within yards of the crematoriums; the Germans who resettled occupied Poland, moving into the houses whose Jewish owners had been sent to their death; the state employees who sold Jews half-fare excursion tickets to the camps- one way; and others. Then there are the survivors themselves: a Polish barber who cut the hair of women he knew were to die in the next few minutes; a thirteen-year-old boy who was to work in the death camp's "special squad"; the Pole who was taken into the Warsaw ghetto so that he could report to the outside world what he had seen; a woman who lived in hiding in Berlin for most of the war, in anguish at the fate of her people and her own escape from it. The film shows no archival footage, it is through the words themselves that the imagination recreated the world described in these words- a way of getting at the truth that is far more shocking than the depiction of actual images. Shoah is unforgettable, and it is destined to become a landmark of film and history. -- Publisher description

Le dernier des injustes by Claude Lanzmann( Book )

17 editions published between 2010 and 2017 in German and French and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Le dernier des injustes, qui a son origine dans le film du même nom, est le plus extraordinaire témoignage sur la genèse de la solution finale. Il permet de comprendre comment les nazis passent en deux ans de l'expulsion impitoyable des Juifs d'Autriche, de Tchécoslovaquie et d'Allemagne à la mort de masse dans les chambres à gaz. Benjamin Murmelstein est le personnage central de ce livre, témoin capital qui deviendra le président du Conseil juif du ghetto de Theresienstadt, créé par Eichmann pour faire croire au monde à la vie heureuse que voulait Hitler pour les Juifs qu'il allait assassiner. Rabbin de la communauté juive de Vienne, d'une mémoire et d'une intelligence hors normes, d'une immense culture, d'un caractère d'acier, d'une clairvoyance inouïe, jusqu'à deviner et déjouer les mesures atroces projetées par les nazis, Murmelstein dresse un portrait extraordinaire d'Eichmann, qu'il dut fréquenter pendant sept ans : pas du tout l'homme de la "banalité du mal", comme l'a prétendu Hannah Arendt, mais un antisémite d'une cruauté sans frein, impitoyable et corrompu. En même temps, Murmelstein se livre à une critique féroce du procès d'Eichmann à Jérusalem, mal préparé, où on refusa de le convoquer et de l'entendre. Contraint par la force de coopérer avec les nazis, Murmelstein ne fut en rien un "collaborateur", même si des détenus de Theresienstadt voulurent le faire passer pour tel. Jugé à sa demande par la justice tchèque, il fut acquitté de toutes les calomnies portées contre lui. Avec sa femme et son fils, il s'exila à Rome, sans avoir jamais connu Israël. À sa mort, en 1989, le rabbin de Rome refusa de l'inhumer et de dire pour lui le kaddish, la prière des morts."--Page 4 of cover

L'Oiseau n'a plus d'ailes ... : Les lettres by Peter Schwiefert( Book )

8 editions published in 1974 in French and German and held by 74 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Letters sent by a young German (1917-1945), son of a Jewish mother and non-Jewish father (his parents later divorced), mainly addressed to his mother between 1938-41, and letters sent to him (up until 1945). The letters were written in German and have been translated into French. Schwiefert was born in 1917 in Berlin. He left Germany in 1938 for Portugal, settling in Faro while waiting for a visa to South America. He converted officially to Judaism, while his mother, at the same time, converted to Christianity. In late 1939, Schwiefert was expelled from Portugal and found refuge in Greece. After a short stay in Greece, he returned to France in 1940 and joined the French resistance; he was killed in battle in Alsace in January 1945. His mother and two half-sisters escaped to Bulgaria in 1940 and survived the Shoah. Includes a preface by Lanzmann (p. 7-9), who was given the letters by Schwiefert's half-sister, Angelika Schrobsdorff (who had settled in Jerusalem), and had them published in French

Sartre inédit entretien et témoignages by Claude Lanzmann( Visual )

11 editions published in 2005 in French and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1967, Jean-Paul Sartre gives an exclusive interview with Canadian television, which remained unpublished until now and never released on video in France. Avec une liberté de ton étonnante et un grand sens de la pédagogie, il s'explique sur ses engagaments et leur apparente contradiction avec son travail d'écrivain et de philosophe. With an astonishing outspoken and a great sense of pedagogy, he explains on its commitments and their apparent contradiction with his work as a writer and philosopher. Ses propos sur la guerre du Vietnam et "l'arrogance militaire américaine" font curieusement écho aux débats actuels. His remarks on the Vietnam War and the "arrogant American military" are curiously echoes the current debates. Sartre donne quelques clés sur son travail d'écriture littéraire de Flaubert, l'idiot de la famille et des mots, ainsi que sur sa philosophie de l'existencialisme. Sartre gives some keys on his writing literary Flaubert, the family idiot and words, and on his philosophy of existencial. Il manifeste une grande lucidité quant au rôle social que ses amis politiques lui font jouer, qui ne lui correspond pas tout entier. It shows great insight about the social role that his political friends are playing it, which did not correspond entirely. --www.nouveau-monde

Sartre and Beauvoir, lifelong companions, are jointly questioned about their work habits and the nature of their relationship, offering a rare glimpse into their private lives, including a discussion with Sartre's 85-year-old mother and his adopted daughter. Asked why they finally agreed to such an intimate look at their lives, Beauvoir explains that they are doing so "out of friendship for our readers. Our gift to them. This is a time capsule."
