Join us on International Holocaust Remembrance Day,

Sunday, January 27, at 1:00 pm

for the global film premiere of

Who Will Write Out History

The Holocaust Memorial and Tolerance Center of Nassau County (HMTC) will be joining more than 150 organizations in more than 30 countries for an unprecedented global screening of the new documentary, Who Will Write Our History, on International Holocaust Remembrance Day. HMTC’s David Taub Reel Upstanders Film Series and 2G North shore will present the screening.

Who Will Write Our History is written, produced and directed by Roberta Grossman, executive produced by Nancy Spielberg and is based on the book Who Will Write Our History?  By Samuel D. Kassow. The film tells the story of historian Emanuel Ringelblum and the secret archive he created in the Warsaw ghetto.

In November 1940, days after the Nazis sealed 450,000 Jews in the Warsaw Ghetto, a secret band of journalists, scholars and community leaders, called Oyneg Shabes, decided to fight back. Who Will Write our History mixes the writings of the Oyneg Shabes archive with new interviews, rarely seen footage and stunning dramatizations to transport us inside the Ghetto and the lives of these courageous resistance fighters, who defied their murderous enemy with the ultimate weapon – the truth – and risked everything so that their archive would survive the war, even if they did not.

$18 suggested donation to attend. Light refreshments will be served. RSVP to (516) 571-8040 or info@hmtcli.org.

The David Taub Reel Upstanders Film Series was established in honor of David Taub (1932-2010), a Holocaust Survivor and respected friend of the Center. 2G North Shore Long Island, a 2nd Generation group, affiliated with HMTC, along with 2G South Shore Long Island, meets periodically to explore and share the unique experiences, awareness, bonds, burdens and responsibilities that come with being children of Holocaust Survivors.
