-- I remember when "SHOAH" was released in 1984 or '85. I was living in San Jose at the time and was only 12 or 13 years-old. It's a film by Claude Lanzmann, a Jewish Frenchman, who fought against the Nazis when he joined the Resistance, and later was a friend of Jean-Paul Sartre and Simone de Beauvoir, with whom he was lovers for some time. The entire film is about 10 hours long, but I've chosen a 10-min-part in which Simon, a Jewish Polish survivor, goes back to the village (or town) where the Nazis and Catholic Poles had taken part in emptying the place of its Jews, sending them away to their death on the infamous "transport". Simon is filmed at the Church, as Lanzmann sets up the camera and frames him in such a way that Simon is in the center, with the Church's doors behind him, almost looking like an empty tomb. At some point the Catholic neighbors begin to feel uncomfortable with Lanzmann's questions and it finally comes out... the hate and the justification for the mass murder of Jews when one man refers to the bible and the killing of Jesus, by saying that it was "God's will" that the Jews were killed.... "his blood is on us and on our children!"
