Filmmaker Claude Lanzmann, director of the documentary “Shoah,” pulled out of a Holocaust conference because a controversial American academic was also invited to speak. Lanzmann objected to the presence of Norman Finkelstein, author of “The Holocaust Industry,” which charges that Jewish groups have blackmailed European nations to pay the victims of the Nazis.
