"1938: Different". "Fascism can still return in the guise of more innocent people. Our duty is to unmask it and to point to the index on each of the new shapes – every day, in every part of the world," wrote Umberto Eco. In 2018, have been recalled eighty years after the Promulgation of the Racial Laws of Fascist. An important anniversary and a theme that, unfortunately, is still very current. Eighty years ago, therefore, the Italian people, which was not traditionally anti-semitic, he was pushed by fascist propaganda to accept the persecution of a minority who lived peacefully in Italy for centuries. How was all this possible? And as far as we know even today of that historical moment? "1938 Several" wants to tell us about what led to the jews the italians the implementation of those laws, and the population of the jewish and non-jewish) lived the racism and the persecution. In particular, the film will focus on the subtle mechanisms of persuasion put in place by fascism, thanks to the effective and pervasive actions of the Ministry of Popular Culture (MinCulPop), management centre of the regime's propaganda.
"Who will write our history" . The film is written, directed and produced by Roberta Grossman. In November 1940, the nazis were 450 thousand jews in the Warsaw ghetto. A secret group composed of journalists, researchers and community leaders, led by the historian Emanuel Ringelblum and known by the code name Oyneg Shabes ("The joy of the Sabbath" in yiddish), he decided to fight the lies and the propaganda of the oppressors with a pen and paper rather than with guns and violence. Oyneg Shabes has told the story of the life in the ghetto from the jewish point of view. He has commissioned, diaries, essays, stories, poems and songs, and has documented the nazi atrocities with the eyewitnesses being able to get up to London the terrible reports about mass exterminations made by the germans. Then, while the trains deportavano the population to the gas chambers of Treblinka, and the ghetto was destroyed by the flames, the members of the Oyneg Shabes were able to bury 60,000 pages of documents in the hope that the archives survive the war and to their own end.
The largest collection of testimonies. Now, for the first time, the story of Emanuel Ringelblum and the archive of Oyneg Shabes is told in a documentary film that interweaves images of the texts of the archive with new interviews and rare footage, enriched by historical reconstructions that allow the viewer to be transported inside of the Ghetto and the lives of those courageous fighters of the resistance. Through the voices of the three times oscar-nominated Joan Allen and Oscar winner Adrian Brody, the film is a tribute to the determination that allowed the members of the Oyneg Shabes to create the largest collection of eyewitness testimony, able to survive the war.
The moments of hope, anguish and anger. The documentary follows their moments of hope, anguish, despair, and anger towards their fellow jews against the oppressors, the nazis. Capture their humor, the desire, the hunger, and their determination to maintain their humanity in the face of difficulties untold. And in the end, through their voices, actions and experiences, Who Will Write Our History defeats those who distort and disumanizzano the"other" in favour of those who stand up, fight, and, as he wrote a member of Oyneg Shabes, "scream the truth to the world".
