  3. Who Will Write Our History - Holocaust Documentary marks 75th Anniversary of the end of World War II

    January 30, 2020, 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM @ General Douglas MacArthur Memorial

    To mark the 75th anniversary of the end of World War II and the liberation of the remaining Nazi concentration camps, the MacArthur Memorial, the Tidewater Jewish Federation, and the Holocaust Commission of the United Jewish Federation of Tidewater have partnered to sponsor a free public screening of the documentary Who Will Write Our History (2018). In November 1940, the Nazis sealed 450,000 Jews in the Warsaw Ghetto, with the intention of transporting them to concentration camps. Who Will Write Our History tells the story of a secretive group of journalists, scholars, and community leaders within the Warsaw Ghetto who decided to fight back. Led by historian Emanuel Ringelblum and known by the code name Oyneg Shabes, the group vowed to defeat Nazi lies and propaganda not with guns or fists, but with pen and paper.
