Monika Krawczyk, lawyer and international speaker, will discuss The Ringelblum Archive, a collection of thousands of handwritten messages from people who knew they were about to die. Generally recognized as the most important personal testimony of World War II, these crumbling scraps of paper were originally hidden in milk cans and buried inside the Warsaw ghetto. Discovered and carefully excavated from the rubble of war in 1946 - 1950, they were included on UNESCO’s Memory of the World list in 1999, and were published as a 38-volume set of books in 2017. They are in the process of being translated into English now. 

Krawczyk was appointed by the Polish Ministry of Culture and National Heritage to serve as custodian of this legacy, which is on permanent exhibit in Warsaw. Her talk will provide an overview of the field by showing how a group of personal writings, when taken as a whole, enrich history.
