In November 1940, days after the Nazis sealed 450,000 Jews in the Warsaw Ghetto, a secret band of journalists, scholars and community leaders decided to fight back. Led by historian Emanuel Ringelblum and known by the code name Oyneg Shabes, this clandestine group vowed to defeat Nazi lies and propaganda, not with guns or fists but with pen and paper. Now, for the first time, their story is told as a feature documentary. Through rarely seen footage and stunning dramatizations filmmaker Roberta Grossman to transport us inside the Ghetto and the lives of these courageous resistance fighters. (USA, 2018, 95 Mins, English/Yiddish/Polish | Dir. Roberta Grossman)
