Ankara: Turkey has marked the international Holocaust Remembrance Day by airing a French epic documentary about the Holocaust.
TRT television`s documentary channel showed filmmaker Claude Lanzmann`s "Shoah" late on Thursday, on the eve of the remembrance day.
The filmmaker said this is the first time the film was broadcast on state television in a Muslim country.
The documentary was aired as part of a campaign to promote understanding between Jews and Muslims and to fight Holocaust denial.
Lanzmann worked for 11 years on the film, which was released in 1985.
