A Visitor from the Living

Synopsis

Prior to The Last of the Unjust, Lanzmann grappled with the existence of Czechoslovakia’s Theresienstadt, a fortress town that the Nazis presented as a “model Jewish settlement” for propaganda purposes. His tête-à-tête with Maurice Rossel (filmed in 1979) hinges on the latter’s tour of the camp in his capacity as a representative of the International Red Cross—and his subsequent evaluation, in which he accorded it a positive grade; Lanzmann presents the man with damning evidence.
