Who Will Write Our History (37 min. 2018)

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 of

journalists, scholars, and community leaders in the Warsaw Ghetto vowed to defeat Nazi lies

and propaganda not with guns or fists, but with pen and paper.


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 these courageous resistance fighters. They defied their enemy with the ultimate

weapon – the truth – and risked everything so that their archive would survive the war, even if

they did not. Audience Award- International Jewish Film Festival
