LA DERNIÈRE D’ENTRE ELLES_Les Films de l’œil sauvage_Pierre Goetschel.jpg


A few years ago Pierre Goetchel discovered an unfinished handwritten manuscript by his long dead grandmother, Fernande Goetchel, relating what happened to her and her friends at Auschwitz Birkenau. In the early sixties these women reunited and appeared in a silent home movie together. The filmmaker tracks down the last survivor of that group, the 94 year old Rosette Levy. Using interviews with her, actors reading Fernande’s and her companions’ memoirs, clips from The Last Stage a film made by survivors shortly after the war, he brings their stories to life.
