Film Screening: Who Will Write Our History

February 4, 2019, 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Free

An Award winning film set in November, 1940, days after the Nazis sealed 450,000 Jews in the Warsaw Ghetto, a secret band of journalists, scholars, and community leaders decided to fight back.

Led by historian Emanuel Ringelblum and using the code name Oyneg Shabes, this clandestine group vowed to defeat Nazi Lies and propaganda by documenting events in the Ghetto as they unfolded. “Who Will Write Our History” mixes the writings of the Oyneg Shabes archive with new interviews, rarely seen footage and stunning dramatizations to transport us inside the Ghetto. These courageous resistance fighters risked everything so that their archive would survive the war, even if they did not.

The film will be introduced by History profession Winson Chu.
