Hailed by the New Republic as possibly “the most important book of history that anyone will ever read”, Who Will Write Our History? tells the astounding story of Emanuel Ringelblum, who set up a clandestine operation to collect and preserve 35,000 documents in tin boxes buried underground, to preserve the memory of the Warsaw Ghetto and its inhabitants. Samuel Kassow bears witness to this extraordinary act of defiance in the face of tyranny and to the triumph of history.
