Jewish Film Festival Movie: Who Will Write Our History
Dinner at the Bridge
Meet at the AMC Loews Theater on Route 1 in New Brunswick for the 3:30pm showing of Who Will Write Our History. Soon after the Nazis sealed the Warsaw Ghetto, a brave group of resistance fighters compiled and hid some 35,000 pages of testimonies about life in the ghetto. Gathered over three years, the documents were hidden underground in milk cans and metal cases. Combining excerpts from this secret archive with interviews and rare footage, this powerful documentary dramatizes the pen-and-paper rebellion waged by those who risked their lives to ensure that the truth would outlive them.
The film will run for 90 minutes, will be followed by a talk by Dr. Samuel Kassow (Trinity College), who wrote the same-named book the film is based on, with audience Q & A. Following the talk we will have a group dinner at Bridge: Turkish and Mediterranean Grill (315 Raritan Ave., Highland Park) at 6 PM.
