“WHO WILL WRITE OUR HISTORY”

A new film by Roberta Grossman and Nancy Spielberg featuring the voices of: Three-time Academy Award® Nominee Joan Allen and Academy Award Winner® Adrien Brody

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.

Based on the book by Samuel Kassow, this film was written, produced and directed by Roberta Grossman (Hava Nagila, Above and Beyond) and executive produced by Nancy Spielberg (Above and Beyond). 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 thse courageous resistance fighters.

About the archive: In 1999, three document collections from Poland were included in UNESCOs Memory of the World Register: the masterpieces of Chopin, the scientific works of Copernicus and the Oyneg Shabes Archive. The Oyneg Shabes Archive is the richest cache of eyewitness accounts to survive the Holocaust.
