Duration   1h

Please join the Holocaust Resource Center of Kean University and the Jewish Foundation for the Righteous for an upcoming workshop on the book Word Smugglers: A Story of Resistance in the Warsaw Ghetto featuring the author Amy McDonald.

The Oyneg Shabes underground archive was the secret archive of the Warsaw Ghetto led and organized by Polish Jewish historian, teacher, and social aid worker, Dr. Emanuel Ringelblum. He and his colleagues wrote about daily life in the ghetto, forced labor, religious life, the fate of Jewish children, smuggling, underground schools, the underground press, cultural resistance, and armed resistance.

Amy McDonald's book, Word Smugglers: A Story of Resistance in the Warsaw Ghetto, recounts the story of a courageous group of men, women, and young people who chose to resist and fight back against cruelty and fear. This group did not fight back with guns and weapons. They fought back with words, stories, and truth. (Recommended for grades 7-12.)
