‘The Last of the Unjust’ (2013) is based on a series of interviews that Claude Lanzmann conducted with Rabbi Benjamin Murmelstein in 1975. A controversial figure, Murmelstein was appointed by the Nazis as “Elder of the Jews” at Theresienstadt ghetto. He was charged for collaborating with the Nazis after the war, but was acquitted. The film also features Lanzmann’s 2012 journey back to Theresienstadt, posing vital questions about our understanding of the Holocaust and the conflicting identity of the Jewish councils. 

Screenings as part of From the Trenches of the Marne to the Hills of Rwanda.
