Claude Lanzmann’s new documentary is built around a 1979 interview with Holocaust survivor Yehuda Lerner, who details the violent uprising of Jewish inmates at the Sobibor concentration camp. The film builds toward the moment when Lerner lifted a carpenter’s ax to smash the skull of a Nazi officer, a renunciation of victimhood that is brave, scary, and moving.
