The Last of the Unjust

The Last of the Unjust

A film by Claude Lanzmann
Starring Benjamin Murmelstein, Claude Lanzmann

In this riveting exploration of contested history, the inexhaustible Holocaust documentarian Claude Lanzmann (Shoah) revisits a 1975 interview with Benjamin Murmelstein, the Viennese rabbi who worked with Adolf Eichmann to arrange for the emigration of 120,000 Jews, an ethically thorny collaboration which saved many lives – and landed Murmelstein in prison.

With Shoah, Director Lanzmann (87 and still going strong) re-oriented our understanding of the defining event of the 20th century. Three decades after that cinematic milestone, he does so once again, from an entirely new personal, historical, and aesthetic perspective.

Demanding and deeply rewarding.Variety
