The screening of Roberta Grossman’s film „Who will write our history” will take place in over 250 locations worldwide: international organizations, cultural and academic centres, museums, cinemas, theatres, synagogues.

The film will be accompanied with a discussion, which will include such participants as Audrey Azoulay – general director of UNESCO, Éric de Rothschild, head of the Memorial de la Shoah, Nancy Spielberg, producer of the film, Roberta Grossman, and Samuel D. Kassow. The discussion will be moderated by Stephen Smith, head of the USC Shoah Foundation and representative of UNESCO in the area of education about genocide.
