Who Will Write Our History: Roberta Grossman, Nancy Spielberg and Samuel Kassow with Dana Bash

Nov 19, 2019

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.

Join Roberta Grossman, the film’s writer, producer and director, Nancy Spielberg, executive producer, Samuel Kassow, writer for a conversation moderated by Dana Bash following a screening of the documentary.

Co-presented with The Committee to Protect Journalists and Ronald S. Lauder
