A traveling exhibition of original documents, photographs and items collected and hidden by Emanuel Ringelblum and other members of his underground movement. Through their secret activities, Ringelblum’s group (code-named “Oneg Schabbat”) sought to record the history of Polish Jews under German occupation, and document their persecution, resistance and self-assertion in the ghettos and camps. Includes pictures of the group’s members, and brief descriptions of their activities and fates. Introductory essay by Ruta Sakowska. Basic entries. 50 items.


The exhibition was jointly organized by the Museum Judengasse Frankfurt and the Żydowski Instytut Historyczny (ZIH), and represents the first showing of the Ringelblum Archives to the German public.
