03. Warsaw Ghetto Underground Archive - Fighting with Pen and Paper. Professors Samuel Kassow and Dariusz Stola TJHTalks

    • Education

One clandestine group in the Warsaw Ghetto vowed to defeat German Nazi lies and propaganda; not with guns or fists, but with pen and paper.

Exclusive webinar with Prof. Samuel Kassow, the author of bestselling “Who Will Write Our History”.

Professor Kassow was joined by Professor Dariusz Stola to discuss the inspiring story of the Oyneg Shabes Group, a network of journalists, scholars and community leaders who took the narrative into their own hands and made sure that the voices of the victims would be heard.

WHO WERE THE CREATORS OF THE WARSAW GHETTO UNDERGROUND ARCHIVE?

This story began on a Saturday. In Autumn 1940, a group of several dozen people living in the Warsaw Ghetto began to collect and edit an extensive account of the fate of Polish Jews under German occupation. At that time they weren’t yet aware that increasing persecution will develop into mass extermination of their nation, and that the work which they decided to pursue will become the most important testimony of the Holocaust. They held their meetings on Saturdays, hence the name Oneg Shabbat – „the joy of Sabbath” in Hebrew.
