Turkish public television TRT will broadcast the film “Shoah”, a 9-hour French documentary about the Holocaust, marking the first time it will be viewed in its entirety in a Muslim country.
Turkish public television channel TRT released a statement saying the film would be shown, but did not offer specifics.
“We should acknowledge the courage and determination of the Turks,” said Claude Lanzmann, director of the film. “Turkey is a country people don’t know and understand very badly.”
Project Aladdin, a French-based organization that seeks “to promote harmonious intercultural relations” between Muslims and Jews, has been the prime mover in broadcasting the documentary in Muslim cities around the world.
