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. Murmelstein is a figure despised by many of the ghetto's surviving inhabitants even though, as a rabbi in Vienna, following the annexation of Austria by Germany in 1938, Murmelstein fought bitterly with Adolf Eichmann, week after week for seven years, managing to help around 121,000 Jews leave the country. Intercut with footage of Lanzmann himself revisiting specific sites in Vienna and the Czech Republic, the brilliant Murmelstein -- sometimes excitedly but more often calmly -- explains his actions and precisely defines his paradoxical role in history

"Le dernier des injustes, qui a son origine dans le film du même nom, est le plus extraordinaire témoignage sur la genèse de la solution finale. Il permet de comprendre comment les nazis passent en deux ans de l'expulsion impitoyable des Juifs d'Autriche, de Tchécoslovaquie et d'Allemagne à la mort de masse dans les chambres à gaz. Benjamin Murmelstein est le personnage central de ce livre, témoin capital qui deviendra le président du Conseil juif du ghetto de Theresienstadt, créé par Eichmann pour faire croire au monde à la vie heureuse que voulait Hitler pour les Juifs qu'il allait assassiner. Rabbin de la communauté juive de Vienne, d'une mémoire et d'une intelligence hors normes, d'une immense culture, d'un caractère d'acier, d'une clairvoyance inouïe, jusqu'à deviner et déjouer les mesures atroces projetées par les nazis, Murmelstein dresse un portrait extraordinaire d'Eichmann, qu'il dut fréquenter pendant sept ans : pas du tout l'homme de la "banalité du mal", comme l'a prétendu Hannah Arendt, mais un antisémite d'une cruauté sans frein, impitoyable et corrompu. En même temps, Murmelstein se livre à une critique féroce du procès d'Eichmann à Jérusalem, mal préparé, où on refusa de le convoquer et de l'entendre. Contraint par la force de coopérer avec les nazis, Murmelstein ne fut en rien un "collaborateur", même si des détenus de Theresienstadt voulurent le faire passer pour tel. Jugé à sa demande par la justice tchèque, il fut acquitté de toutes les calomnies portées contre lui. Avec sa femme et son fils, il s'exila à Rome, sans avoir jamais connu Israël. À sa mort, en 1989, le rabbin de Rome refusa de l'inhumer et de dire pour lui le kaddish, la prière des morts."--Page 4 of cover

Sinopsis: 1975. En Roma, Claude Lanzmann entrevista a Benjamin Murmelstein, el último presidente del Consejo Judío del gueto de Theresienstadt y el único decano de los judíos* que sobrevivió a la guerra. Murmelstein, rabino en Viena, luchó implacablemente contra Adolf Eichmann, día tras día durante siete años, ayudando a emigrar a unos 121.000 judíos y evitando la liquidación del gueto. 2012. Claude Lanzmann, a los 87 años, sin enmascarar el efecto del paso del tiempo en el hombre y poniendo de manifiesto la increíble permanencia de los lugares, recupera esas entrevistas filmadas en Roma y vuelve a Theresienstadt, la ciudad "donada por Hitler a los judíos", el supuesto "gueto modelo" que resultó ser el gueto engaño elegido por Adolf Eichmann para embaucar al mundo. Benjamin Murmelstein, dotado de una inteligencia fascinante, un coraje incuestionable y una memoria portentosa es un formidable narrador irónico, sarcástico y veraz
