In this powerful documentary from acclaimed director Roberta Grossman (Hava Nagila: The Movie) and executive producer Nancy Spielberg (Above and Beyond), a group of Jewish intellectuals led by historian and activist Emanuel Ringelblum (voiced by Adrien Brody) realize that if they should die in the Holocaust, only the Nazi side of the story would remain. Determined not to let the truth of their struggle die with them, Ringelblum and journalist Rachel Auerbach (voiced by Joan Allen) write tirelessly of the days and nights spent in the Warsaw Ghetto while risking their lives to document the accounts of others in an underground resistance movement known as Oyneg Shabes.

Honoring these stewards of history who ensured that Jewish voices were not silenced during the Holocaust, WHO WILL WRITE OUR HISTORY is a necessary installment in the canon of Holocaust documentary and a testament to the power in preserving the truth, no matter the cost. 

Special Guests: Roberta Grossman, Director.
