Full Description:

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, "Who Will Write Our History," based on the work of historian Dr. Sam Kassow. In this session Dr. Kassow will speak about the history of this remarkable archive the the lessons it holds for the world today.
