Description: In 1940, days after the Nazis sealed the Warsaw Ghetto, a secret band of community leaders called the Oyneg Shabes decided to collect pictures and testimonies, burying them before their deportations. This film, created by Roberta Grossman and Nancy Spielberg (the team behind Above and Beyond, BJFF 2014) brings the Oyneg Shabes archive to life, through interviews and rarely seen footage.
