Jewish Life Behind the Walls: Illuminating Emanuel Ringelblum's Oynet Shabes Archive
Samuel D. Kassow, Charles H. Northam Professor of History at Trinity College in Hartford, Connecticut, will discuss
the significance of the Oyneg Shabes–Ringelblum Archive and the recent publication of the catalog and guide to this important collection. Retrieved after World War II from metal boxes and milk cans buried beneath the ruins of
the Warsaw ghetto, the archive provides a documentary record of the wartime fate of Polish Jewry. One of the milk cans
is on view in the Museum’s Permanent Exhibition.
The publication of the Warsaw Ghetto Oyneg Shabes–Ringelblum Archive Catalog and Guide was made possible by a gift from
Esther Cohen of Encino, California, in dedication to her grandchildren, and in the cause of remembrance.
