The Last of the Unjust – December 1st, 12.00 at the Irish Film Institute

Last of the Unjust - Irish Film Institute

Last of The UnjustThis astonishing documentary focusses on a series of interviews Lanzmann conducted in 1975 with Benjamin Murmelstein, a contentious figure appointed by the Nazis as ‘elder of the Jews’ at Thereseinstadt ghetto, and charged but acquitted for collaboration after the war. Murmelstein provides a vivid account of his experiences, including his relationship with principal Holocaust architect, Adolf Eichmann, ‘a demon’, he describes, who was anything but banal. An extension of Lanzmann’sShoah (1985), this impactful film poses vital questions about our understanding of this dire and enduring catastrophe of modern times.
