WHO WILL WRITE OUR HISTORY | Presented by the Gershman Philadelphia Jewish Film Festival

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 perish in the Holocaust, only the Nazis’ side of the story would prevail. Determined to keep the truth of their struggle from dying 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 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.
