Led by historian Emanuel Ringelblum and known by the code name Oyneg Shabes, a clandestine group of journalists, scholars, and community leaders in the Warsaw Ghetto 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 in the documentary featuring the voices of three-time Academy Award nominee Joan Allen and Academy Award winner Adrian Brody.

I'm not a fan of reenactments in documentaries, especially when, as here, the real-life footage is so searing. But the staged sequences are tastefully done... This film is itself an important act of historical reclamation.

Though its form is complex, including archival scenes that include concentration camp-type footage, the film's emotional through line is clear and direct.

A vital and sobering documentary...

Regardless of its missteps, Grossman's film should be seen as a necessary introduction to a multitude of stories warranting greater analysis.

Jan 18, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

A deeply moving history-behind-the-history.

Jan 17, 2019 | Full Review…

The filmmakers aren't simply trying to appeal to viewers who might be bored by a movie constructed entirely of historical material. The mix of old and new elements actually makes an argument for the movie's approach.
