The Last Fighters
Documentary Films • 1h 16m
This film accompanies the six last surviving Warsaw Ghetto uprising fighters, all over 80 years old, between 2003-2006. Kazik Rotem, Masha Futermilch-Gleitman, Pnina Greenspan and Aharon Carmi live in Israel. Brunk Spigel lives in Canada . Marek Edelman decided to remain in Poland. Their memories from the uprising and their understanding of the events in retrospect, 60 years later, is different and far more complex than what has settled into the collective memory.
