UPRISING and Honoring Memories
The Warsaw Ghetto Uprising, one of the greatest Jewish resistance stories of all time (and we sure did have a few) has become a monumental symbol.
Next Sunday (the 27th) our community will participate in the global screening event of Who Will Write Our History
, the latest Nancy Spielberg/Roberta Grossman film collaboration, on the International Day of Commemoration in Memory of the Victims of the Holocaust. Returning to the Whaling Museum for another first-class community event, we join more than 300 communities (take a look at this link for a current screening list
) holding similar events that will take place in 40 different countries.
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. The group vowed to defeat Nazi propaganda with pen and paper. Who Will Write Our History is their story, transporting us inside the Ghetto. They defied their enemy with the truth so that their story would survive even if they didn't.
Join us as we honor the memories!
