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. 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.\r\n\r\nAWARDS\r\n2019 Ferrara Film Festival – Winner, Golden Dragon – Best Documentary World\r\n \r\nSponsored by Sandra & David Khorsandy\r\nSupported by the U.S Consulate General of Hong Kong and Macau & The Hong Kong Holocaust & Tolerance Centre \r\n\r\nScreened in English.
