Shoah - שואה

It is no coincidence that Claude Lantzman chose to name his 9 hour epic "Shoah" - this is the Hebrew name for the holocaust. Usually one would add the letter Heh (ה), which serves as "the" in Hebrew, unless you are using the word for a purpose other than the holocaust of the Jewish people in WWII.
