Who Will Write Our History
Tuesday, October 30th, 2018 @ 1:00 pm & 7:00 pm

The 23rd JCC Sonoma County Jewish Film Festival has a great selection of films for you.

The festival continues with Who Will Write Our History.

In 1940, a secret Jewish group called Oyneg Shabes was formed in Warsaw, driven by the question “Will the Germans write our history, or will we?” They decided to document life in the Ghetto, risking their lives daily. This moving tribute mixes the most important surviving in-the-moment archives with new interviews, rarely seen footage, and stunning dramatizations to transport us inside the Warsaw Ghetto. It tells the story of the ingenuity and courage, optimism and persistence of the group’s heroes, and their fight to defeat Nazi lies and propaganda with the ultimate weapon – the truth.

Q&A with the film’s director Roberta Grossman will follow both screenings.
