A landmark documentary about the Holocaust is to be shown on a satellite TV channel which broadcasts into Iran.
Claude Lanzmann’s 1985 film Shoah is to be dubbed into Farsi and shown from Monday on the private Pars channel, which broadcasts from Los Angeles.
Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has described the Holocaust as a myth and has called for an end to the Israeli state.
Satellite TV dishes are illegal in Iran but enforcement is patchy.
The film will be shown in 50-minute segments over two weeks.
