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. The film mixes the writings of the Oyneg Shabes archive, interviews, rarely seen footage and dramatizations to transport us inside the Ghetto and the lives of these courageous resistance fighters. They 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.
70 years after the end of the war, 94-year-old Oskar Gröning was charged with the murder of 300,000 Jews. The defendant’s age and his role in overseeing the confiscation of the victims’ possessions on arrival at the camp sparked worldwide debate on his culpability and fitness to stand trial. This powerful documentary explores complex legal and moral questions that affect not only our remembrance of the Holocaust but also the promise that it will never happen again.
