- Synopsis / Plot
- A powerful Holocaust documentary that uses actual testimonials from survivors to recreate the horrors and tragedies that occurred during Hitler's reign. This is the story of the Jews of Hungary, whose lives were forever changed when Germans invaded during the last days of World War II. The story is told by five people, all Americans now, who, as youngsters survived the Holocaust. The film follows them back to their hometowns, as they recount pleasant childhood memories, then, deportation to the camps, narrow escapes from execution, liberation, and their journeys to America. Building entire new lives out of their turbulent childhoods, their tenacity is uplifting and their courage inspirational.
Tom Lantos is the only Holocaust survivor ever elected to Congress; Alice Lok Cahana is a highly regarded artist whose paintings reflect both the horrors and joys of her life; Rene Firestone is a very strong woman dedicated to educate about the holocaust. Bill Basch is a retired fashion industry executive; and Irene Zisblatt is a proud grandmother and self-made businesswoman.
Shot on location in the United States, Europe, and Ukraine, "The Last Days" is a Monumental Filmmaking Achievement that interweaves eyewitness accounts, pivotal historic footage and a powerful score from Academy Award-winning, composer Hans Zimmer.
