A Jewish family from Poland, the Weisses, is sent to Auschwitz where the daughter, Martha, is selected to be an interpreter. The rest of her family is cruelly killed, and Martha and the other Poles must struggle under the tyranny of camp guards and capos. The Last Stage is a powerful drama of the strength and endurance of ordinary women written by Gerda Schneider and directed by Poland s first female filmmaker, Wanda Jakubowska, who based the story on their own experiences at the notorious concentration camp.

Shot in a documentary-like style on location in Auschwitz just three years after the war ended, this recently rediscovered film is one of the earliest cinematic depictions of the Holocaust. It rings with truth and stings with authenticity.

Epicka opowiesc o zyciu i walce bohaterskich kobiet roznych narodowosci, wie Zniarek Oswiecimia-Birkenau. Film ma luZna konstrukcje, akcja rozwija sie kilkoma rownoleglymi watkami. Marta jest polska Zydowka, tlumaczka, dzialala w obozowym ruchu oporu; ginie podczas proby ucieczki. Rosyjska wieZniarka - lekarz Eugenia, probujaca rzeczywiscie ratowac chorych, zostaje poddana torturom i stracona. Niemiecka komunistka Anna trafia do obozowego bunkra. Tragiczne losy wieZniarek, zdziczenie i sadyzm niemieckiej zalogi obozu - ten syntetyczny obraz rzeczywistosci oswiecimskiej przekazala byla wieZniarka Oswiecimia - Wanda Jakubowska. Pierwszy polski film, ktory wszedl na ekrany w ponad piecdziesieciu krajach i ktory prasa swiatowa uznala za dzielo wielkiego formatu. Jeden z najbardziej wstrzasajacych dokumentow drugiej wojny swiatowej.
