Join Roberta Grossman for a free screening of her new documentary Who Will Write Our History.
5:00 p.m. Reception | 6:00 p.m. Film Screening
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 Warsaw Ghetto and the lives of these courageous resistance fighters. The film recently won the audience award for documentary feature at the San Francisco Jewish Film Festival.
This screening is free and open to the public, but please RSVP to attend.
This free screening is presented by Jordan Bleznick in memory of his mother Rozlyn Bleznick.
Additional support is provided by The Cahn Family Foundation and The Jewish Endowment Foundation of Louisiana.
