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.
