In November 1940, days after the Nazis sealed 450,000 Jews in the Warsaw Ghetto, a secret group led by Emanuel Ringelblum and known by the code name Oyneg Shabes decided to fight back. Vowing to defeat Nazi lies and propaganda, these courageous resistance fighters created the most important collection of eyewitness accounts from the Holocaust, documenting not only how the Jews of the ghetto died, but how they lived.

Special Feature: Discussion led by Jodi Elowitz, Director of Education and Engagement at Nancy & David Wolf Holocaust & Humanity Center, in the newly expanded and relocated exhibit space at Union Terminal. The exhibit space will be open special hours at regular admission from 5 – 7pm prior to the screening of the film.

In partnership with Nancy & David Wolf Holocaust & Humanity Center.
