A Historian in the Ghetto: Emanuel Ringelblum and the Oyneg Shabes Archive

Samuel Kassow, Trinity College

During World War II Jews resisted not only with guns but also with pen and paper. Even in the face of death they left "time capsules" full of documents that they buried under the rubble of ghettos and death camps. The Ringelblum archive in the Warsaw Ghetto buried thousands of documents. But of the 60 people who worked on this national mission, only three survived. This will be their story.
