Q&A with Holocaust scholar, Michael Berenbaum, Director of the Sigi Ziering Institute and friend of Lanzmann.

Synopsis: Starting in 1999, Claude Lanzmann made several films that could be considered satellites of SHOAH, comprised of interviews conducted in the 1970s that didnt make it into the final, monumental work. In the last years of his life, he decided to devote a film to four women from four different areas of Eastern Europe with four different destinies. Lanzmann stated, “The more I thought about these four women, the more the necessity to bring the spotlight on these female faces of the Shoah seems important. Each of them deals with a little-known chapter of the Holocaust, each from a unique point of view.” Lanzmann died on July 5, 2018, one day after Shoah: Four Sisters was released in French cinemas. This is the last film from Lanzmann.
