In commemoration of Holocaust Remembrance Day on January 27, please join Musselman Library for a viewing of the documentary Who Will Write Our History, on Wednesday, January 30 at 7:00 p.m. in the Joseph Theater in Breidenbaugh Hall.

The film, released in 2018, is a feature length documentary that tells the story of a group of brave journalists, scholars, and community leaders who resisted the Nazis by preserving the truth and memory of life in the Warsaw Ghetto. Led by historian Emanuel Ringelblum, the creation of the Oyneg Shabes Archive was their way of fighting back against Nazi propaganda. These brave men and women risked everything to ensure that the archive would survive the war, regardless of their own fate.

After the film there will be a short panel discussion with Professor of History, William Bowman, Associate Professor of Religious Studies, Stephen Stern, and Assistant Professor of French, Charlotte Werbe.

Please be advised that the content of the film and discussion panel will engage with the topic of antisemitism and violence. The film contains graphic content and may be upsetting to some audiences.
