Discovery has acquired the global television rights to Warsaw Ghetto documentary “Who Will Write Our History” from Abramorama, the film’s distributor.
Featuring narration from actors Joan Allen and Adrien Brody (“The Pianist”), “Who Will Write Our History” begins in November 1940, days after the Nazis sealed 450,000 Jews in the Warsaw Ghetto, when a secret group of journalists, scholars, and community leaders decide to fight back.
Led by Emanuel Ringelblum and known by the code name Oyneg Shabes, the clandestine group vowed to defeat Nazi lies and propaganda not with guns or fists but with pen and paper.
“Who Will Write Our History” mixes the writings of the Oyneg Shabes archive with new interviews, rarely seen footage, and dramatizations (shot on location in Lodz and Warsaw, Poland) to transport viewers inside the Ghetto.
“Who Will Write Our History” is scheduled to air in the U.S. on the Discovery channel in January 2020.
