Our students were recently treated to a private screening of the documentary “The Last Fighters” with a discussion with the film’s director and producer Mr. Ronen Zaretzky. The documentary follows the last six living fighters (Kazik Rotem, Masha Futermilch-Gleitman, Pnina Greenspan, Aharon Carmi, Brunk Spigel and Marek Edelman) of the uprising in the Warsaw Ghetto in 1943. Hearing Zaretzky describe the process of working with these six outstanding individuals was inspiring both because of their stories and the way Zaretzky was able to connect with the subjects of the film in such a personal way. Most of the individuals in the film have since passed, so the film continues to pay homage to them and their legacies.
Last year we were lucky to be able to host two of the daughters of the women featured in the film, which you can read about here.
