Who will write our history: Emanuel Ringelblum and the Oyneg Shabes Archive with Professor Samuel Kassow.

During World War II, Jews resisted not only with guns, but also with pen and paper. Even in the face of death they left ‘time capsules’ full of documents that they buried under the rubble of ghettos and death camps. The Ringelblum archive in the Warsaw Ghetto buried thousands of documents. Of the 60 people who worked on this national mission, only three survived. This will be their story.

Professor Samuel Kassow is the 2016 Kronhill visiting scholar. Kassow is the Charles H. Northam Professor of History at Trinity College, holds a Ph.D. from Princeton University and has lectured and taught in Mexico, Lithuania, Russia and Poland and Israel.

He has received National Endowment for the Humanities, Fulbright, Woodrow Wilson and Danforth Fellowships and has been an IREX Fellow at Warsaw, Moscow. He has also been elected a Fellow of the American Academy of Jewish Research.
