October 24: Who Will Write Our History

Who Will Write Our History 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. Led by historian Emanuel Ringelblum and known by the code name Oyneg Shabes, this clandestine group vowed to defeat Nazi lies and propaganda not with guns or fists but with pen and paper. Now, for the first time, their story is told as a feature documentary.

December 19: Vitch

A daughter tells the story of the controversial choices that her father, a Jewish artist from Poland, made in order to survive the Holocaust. Eddie Vitch (nee Ignace Levkovitch) was a talented caricature and mime artist. He performed in Germany’s most prestigious theaters. His documents identified him as “Levkovitch”, a recognizably Jewish name. In other words, he was hiding in plain sight, or maybe the Nazis were protecting him?
