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, this clandestine group vowed to defeat Nazi lies and propaganda not with guns or fists but with pen and paper, gathering and hiding thousands of testimonies from Warsaw natives and refugees from hundreds of other localities to create a documentary record of the wartime fate of Polish Jewry. Now their story is told as a feature documentary film.
