Mon April 29 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Commemorating Yom Hashoah, the community is invited to a special free screening of Who Will Write Our History.
This documentary is a story of resistance.

Based on Samuel Kassow’s book, historian Emanuel 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 Shabbos” 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.

The film will be followed by a panel discussion moderated by Dr. Jeffrey Veidlinger, director of the UM Frankel Center for Judaic Studies.

Join us at the Michigan Theater at 7:30PM on Monday, April 29, 2019.
