Please join us for this official launch of the prestigious series of the Taube Family Holocaust Education Program.
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.
The film screening and symposium are presented by Jordan Bleznick in memory of his mother, Rozlyn Bleznick.
Additional support is provided by the Franco Family Fund, the Cahn Family Foundation, Leopold and Karen Sher, Robert and Robin Garon, and the Jewish Endowment Foundation of Louisiana.
Join leading scholars earlier in the day for a symposium: Topics in Holocaust Studies: "What Do We Do When the Witnesses Are Gone?" This program is also free and open to the public, but please RSVP to attend.
