An evening with Claude Lanzmann

Claude Lanzmann is a legendary French journalist, political commentator, and filmmaker whose most renowned work is the classic nine-and-a-half-hour documentary Shoah (1985). After the liberation of France, he studied philosophy at the Sorbonne, and it was in Paris that he came to know Jean-Paul Sartre and Simone de Beauvoir. As the editor of Sartre’s political-literary journal, Les Temps Modernes—a position that he holds to this day—Lanzmann has long been at the center of postwar French culture

In an event tied to the publication of the English translation of his memoir, The Patagonian Hare- A Memoir , Lanzmann will be reflecting on his life and work .
