At UNESCO’s Paris headquarters on Jan. 27, USC Shoah Foundation Finci-Viterbi Executive Director Stephen Smith will host a panel discussion following a screening of “Who Will Write Our History,” a documentary by Director Roberta Grossman and Executive Producer Nancy Spielberg that chronicles a covert effort by a group of resistance fighters in the Warsaw Ghetto who amassed an archive of documents that would later shed light on the Nazi atrocities that occurred there.
The panel, which will include a discussion and Q-and-A with Roberta Grossman – the film’s writer, producer and director – and Executive Producer Nancy Spielberg, will be live-streamed on Facebook at 2:40 p.m. EST (11:40 a.m. PST).
The panel will be preceded by a Facebook Live one-on-one conversation at 1:20 p.m. EST (10:20 a.m. PST) with Grossman and Spielberg and special guests taking questions from the global Facebook audience. Additional content provided by a number of our partners will include: clips and outtakes from the film, content from the #WeRemember live broadcast from Auschwitz-Birkenau, and Holocaust survivor statements.
The post-screening Facebook Live will include: remote live questions from Washington, D.C. (United States Holocaust Memorial Museum), Los Angeles (Museum of Tolerance), Warsaw (Jewish Historical Institute), and audience members in Paris (UNESCO), a special greeting from the Auschwitz Memorial Museum Director, original video content about the Oyneg Shabes archive, remote statements from holocaust survivors, and more.
