Claude Lanzmann left someone out of his landmark, nine-and-a-half-hour film Shoah. The 1985 documentary, which eschewed historical footage for first-hand testimony, did not feature the controversial figure Benjamin Murmelstein. He was the last president of the Jewish Council at Theresienstadt, the ‘model’ concentration camp used by the Nazis to disguise the nature of the Holocaust, and he spoke to Lanzmann on camera for the first time in 1975. If Lanzmann had included Murmelstein’s testimony, he told The Guardian, “Shoah would have had to be 20 hours long.” Lanzmann’s 1975 interviews with the man who called himself “the last of the unjust” are woven with visits to the sites that marked Murmelstein’s wartime experiences in this documentary. Released 30 January in Israel and 7 February in the US.
