‘Who Will Write Our History?’

By on October 23, 2019

Jewish Family Services of Lancaster is presenting two special screenings of the movie “Who Will Write Our History?” at Penn Cinema. 541 Airport Road, Lititz, on Monday, Nov. 11, at 2 and 7 p.m.

Admission is free (donations will be accepted), but tickets must be ordered. This event is open to the general public.

With a wealth of archival footage and detailed re-enactments, this internationally acclaimed film recounts the incredible story of Emanuel Ringelblum, who secretly led a team of writers and intellectuals to preserve a vibrant Jewish culture in the Warsaw Ghetto shortly after the Nazis took over. What resulted was a startlingly deep and diverse portrait of European Jewish life, as the code name: Oyneg Shabes. The Oyneg Shabes Archive made an invaluable contribution to the historical record. Now for the first time, their story is told in this amazing documentary.

These special showings are being sponsored by the Jewish Community Alliance of Lancaster.
