The Last of the Unjust/Le Dernier des injustes

The UWM Sam & Helen Stahl Center for Jewish Studies is partnering with the UWM 18th Annual Festival of Films in French to present: The Last of the Unjust / Le Dernier des injustes Claude Lanzmann, 2013, France (German, French), 220 min Introduction & Talkback: Shay Pilnik This documentary provides an unprecedented insight into the genesis of the Final Solution. Claude Lanzmann spent many hours in 1975 interviewing Benjamin Murmelstein, who was at the time the only surviving president of the Jewish Council in the Theresienstadt death camp during World War II. These conversations never made it into Shoah and are presented here for the first time. They introduce us to the extraordinary personality of Benjamin Murmelstein, reveal the true face of Eichmann, and expose without artifice the savage contradictions of the Jewish Councils. Presented as part of The Tournées Festival. Co-sponsored by the Nathan & Esther Pelz Holocaust Education Resource Center and the Center for 21st Century Studies.
