Who Will Write Our History: A Conversation with Filmmaker Roberta Grossman

The award-winning film, Who Will Write Our History tells the extraordinary story of the Oyneg Shabes, a clandestine organization led by Emanuel Ringelblum in the Warsaw ghetto during the Nazi German occupation of Poland. Creating an archive that was discovered only after the war, the Oyneg Shabes, collected diaries, essays, jokes, poems, and songs—anything that would counter Nazi propaganda and help the world understand life in the Ghetto from the perspective of its Jewish inhabitants. 

During this webinar we explore our lessons on Who Will Write Our History, learn about educational resources on the Warsaw ghetto at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, and listen to a discussion with the filmmaker on her visionary film.
