Who will write our History?
Ringelblum Archives Symposium

Tel Aviv University, December 27, 2018

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 dramatizations to transport us inside the Ghetto and the lives of these courageous resistance fighters.

On December 27, 2018, The Institute for the History of Polish Jewry and Israel-Poland Relations at the Tel Aviv University, in collaboration with The European Association of POLIN Museum of the History of Polish Jews (Paris) invites you to a scientific symposium devoted to Ringelblum Archives and the screening of the movie “Who will write our history?”
