"Last of the Unjust"- Sneak Preview presented by the LA Jewish Film Festival
Directed by Claude Lanzmann, creator of the acclaimed documentary SHOAH

Introduction by Dr. Michael Berenbaum, renowned Holocaust scholar and Director of the Sigi Ziering Institute at the American Jewish University

IN COMMEMORATION OF UNITED NATIONS HOLOCAUST REMEMBRANCE DAY. (January 27 marks the liberation of Auschwitz.)

Synopsis: 1975. In Rome, Claude Lanzmann filmed a series of interviews with Benjamin Murmelstein, the last President of the Jewish Council in the Theresienstadt ghetto in Czechoslovakia, the only "Elder of the Jews" not to have been killed during the war. A rabbi in Vienna, following the annexation of Austria in 1938, Murmelstein fought bitterly with Adolf Eichmann for seven years, managing to help around 121,000 Jews leave the country, and preventing the liquidation of the ghetto.

2012. Lanzmann, at 87, exhumes these interviews shot in Rome, returning to Theresienstadt, the town "given to the Jews by Hitler", a so-called model ghetto, but a ghetto of deceit chosen by Adolf Eichmann to dupe the world. We discover the extraordinary personality of Benjamin Murmelstein; a man blessed with dazzling intelligence and true courage.

The film provides an unprecedented insight into the genesis of the Final Solution. It reveals the true face of Eichmann, and exposes without artifice the savage contradictions of the Jewish Councils.

Presented in partnership with the Sigi Ziering Institute and the American Jewish University and the Anti-Defamation League
