Led by historian Emanuel Ringelblum and known by the code name Oyneg Shabes, this clandestine group vowed to defeat Nazi lies and propaganda not with guns or fists but with pen and paper. The resistance effort against persecution and oppression during the Holocaust is a topic not specific to just the Jewish community but to all peoples globally, especially in current times.

Early spring of 2015: we were approached by friends about starting up a website as an alternative to existing resources because of concerns and dismay about currently available information portals and social networks. Early June 2015: planning begins for new website. Mid-August through mid-September 2015 involved research into various community information portals/applications. Two very popular systems, vBulletin and phpBB, were implemented but trial runs proved less than acceptable for our goals and needs. 2015_09_23: Chiriqui.Life account was activated using IPS resources.
