"Who Will Write Our History" — NEW YORK PREMIERE

New York Premiere

Q&A with director Roberta Grossman, producer Nancy Spielberg and historian Samuel Kassow + actor Joan Allen in attendance for the 8:30pm screening.

(Today at 3:30pm and 8:30pm) — In November 1940, after the Nazis sealed 450,000 Jews in the Warsaw Ghetto, a vital insurgency took root —not of the sword, but of the pen. A group of scholars, journalists and community leaders led by the historian Emanuel Ringelblum formed a secret resistance, vowing to strike back at Nazi propaganda by documenting the truth. Codenamed Oyneg Shabes, the organization gathered thousands of testimonies from Warsaw natives and refugees from other localities. This documentary mixes writings from the Ringelblum Archive with interviews, rarely seen footage and stunning dramatizations to tell this story for the first time on film—a story of the fight for truth alongside the fight for survival.
