Led by historian Emanuel Ringelblum,a clandestine group of journalists,scholars, and community leaders in the Warsaw Ghetto vowed to defeat Nazi propaganda. They wrote and commissioned diaries, essays, poems and songs. They also collected photographs, official and underground newspapers, and more. On the eve of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising, they buried 60,000 pages of documentation in the hopes that the archive would survive, even if they did not. Now, for the first time, their story is told as a feature documentary.
