In the course of his work on the film Shoah in 1975, Claude Lanzmann conducted a lengthy conversation with the Viennese Rabbi Benjamin Murmelstein, the last president of the Jewish Council of former ghetto Theresienstadt in Czechoslavakia. Decades later Der Letzte der Ungerechten, based on the eleven-hour interview material, throws an entirely new light on the genesis of the holocaust, the image of the “unassuming bureaucrat” Adolf Eichmann and the grave contradictions of the former Jewish council.
