Who Will Write Our History, Directed by Roberta Grossman, USA, 2018, 95 minutes . English, Yiddish, and Polish with English subtitles
Before he was murdered by the Gestapo, Emmanuel Ringelblum collected and preserved a massive archive of the Jewish experience in the Warsaw Ghetto. His materials, found buried in milk cans, included reports of deportations, clippings from underground newspapers, and various artifacts of everyday life. This documentary film tells Ringelblum’s story through images, interviews, and reenactments.
Introductory remarks and post-screening discussion facilitated by Dr. Warren Rosenblum, currently Chair of History, Politics, and International Relations Department at Webster University. As Visiting Fellow at the Mandel Center for Advanced Holocaust Studies (2017), Dr. Rosenblum pursued research for his project The Feeble-Minded in Germany: Between Sympathy and Persecution.
