In 1939, when the world began to close in around the Jews of the Warsaw Ghetto, Emanuel Ringelblum began a secret archive. As the horror mounted over the next five years, he and a valiant group of citizens risked their lives to chronicle it all. The writings they collected, along with diaries, ration cards, artworks, and artifacts from residents of the ghetto were buried in three milk cans and a few metal boxes. In a multimedia production enhanced by archival elements, Marc Spiegel portrays Ringelblum as we share in the precious and powerful legacy held in one of the cans: the stories of vanished lives eloquently told in the words of the people who lived them.
