The new documentary, Who Will Write Our History, about the secret archive of the Warsaw Ghetto, will have a community screening April 29, at 7:30 at the Michigan Theater.

Who Will Write Our History, based on Samuel Kassow’s book, is about historian Emanuel Ringelblum, who gathered a secret band of journalists, scholars, and artists imprisoned in the Warsaw Ghetto to collect and record the story of the war from the Jewish point of view. Known by the code name Oyneg Shabes, their goal was to defy their murderous enemy with the ultimate weapon – the truth. They risked everything so that their archive would survive, even if they did not.


    The screening will be followed by a panel discussion moderated by Professor Jeff Veidlinger, director of the U of M Frankel Center.
