The Last of the Unjust
A place: Theresienstadt. As propaganda Adolf Eichmann called it the "model ghetto", which was in reality the last stop before the gas chamber. A man: Benjamin Murmelstein. As last president of the Theresienstadt Jewish Council he was forced to negotiate with Eichmann day after day during the war. More than twenty-five years after Shoah, Claude Lanzmann’s new film reveals a fundamental aspect of the Holocaust and sheds light on the origins of the "Final Solution".
