Description

During World War II, the clandestine Oneg Shabbat Archive operated in the Warsaw Ghetto, founded and overseen by historian and social-political activist, Dr. Emanuel Ringelblum. For the Holocaust Education Video Toolbox project, five videos were devoted to the voices of the archive members. The videos are based on their own writings, describing the historical and human events in the first person. The six archive members featured in these videos convey different perspectives from within Oneg Shabbat, together creating a complex picture of the archive's activity, faced as it was with the impending fate of the Jews in Warsaw under Nazi rule.
