JHM to screen “Who Will Write Our History” at Loft Cinema

The Jewish History Museum and Holocaust History Center will hold a free screening of “Who Will Write Our History” on Sunday, Jan. 27 at noon at The Loft Cinema, 3233 E. Speedway Blvd., joining hundreds of partners in a global screening event for International Hololocaust Remembrance Day.

The 90-minute documentary is about Emanuel Ringelblum and the Oyneg Shabes Society, whose members sought to create a comprehensive archive of life in the ghetto — a chronicle of disease, starvation and deportation by the Nazis, but also of Jewish culture and the beginnings of the resistance movement. Parts of that archive survived, buried in milk cans and tin boxes, with one cache discovered under the rubble of a school in 1946 and another cache found in 1950.

The film is based on the book of the same name by historian Samuel Kassow.

The Tucson screening is free thanks to the support of Stanley and Norma Feldman, Barry Kirschner and Leslie Nixon.
