"Shoah", a 1985 documentary is, ironically, scheduled to be broadcast in Iran, despite the fact that Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has repeatedly denied the Holocaust and even held a Holocaust Denial Conference in Tehran.


The documentary was to be shown this week on a satellite channel and is dubbed in Farsi. Satellites are banned in Iran, but many Iranians have them and could watch the film, which includes testimony from Holocaust survivors.


The broadcast is sponsored by the Aladdin Project, an independent NGO based in Paris, dedicated to promoting intercultural relations, especially between Jews and Muslims.


According to the Jerusalem Post, the film also has been dubbed into Arabic and Turkish and will be screened in Turkey in April.
