Who Will Write Our History shares the story of Polish-Jewish historian Emanuel Ringelblum and his efforts, along with many others, to preserve the memories of Jews in Nazi-occupied Warsaw. More than 35,000 pages formed an archive, hidden with the hope it would survive the Holocaust. Two of three buried caches were later unearthed. This captivating documentary pulls from the salvaged first-person testimonies to create a comprehensive portrait of resistance and the will to be remembered. In English, Yiddish, and Polish with English subtitles.
