Documentary film screening: Who Will Write Our History (2018)

N/A

Sunday 31st March
3.30pm

FULLY BOOKED

We are pleased to announce that after the fanfare that Who Will Write Our History received at the Jewish International Film Festival, we have the screening rights to this acclaimed documentary.

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 known by the code name Oyneg Shabes, this clandestine group vowed to defeat Nazi lies and propaganda not with guns or fists, but with pen and paper.

Now, for the first time, their story is told as a feature documentary. Written, produced and directed by Roberta Grossman and executive produced by Nancy Spielberg, Who Will Write Our History mixes the writings of the Oyneg Shabes archive with new interviews, rarely seen footage and stunning dramatization to transport us inside the Ghetto and the lives of these courageous resistance fighters.

They defied their murderous enemy with the ultimate weapon – the truth – and risked everything so that their archive would survive the war, even if they did not.
