Room 28 e.V. has decided to realize a European Project. We plan to apply for funding end of February 2017.
We have an extraordinary concept which might attract organizations active in the field of European Remembrance to join in and be our partners.
The idea arose in the last Networking Conference in Barcelona in May/June 2016. But only now we decided to apply. We are aware that it is quite late. Anyhow - maybe you are ready to join in?
This is the rough concept of the project:
More than being a mere chapter of the Holocaust, the story of "The Girls of Room 28, L 410, Theresienstadt" embraces culture, art, friendship and civic values. The educational potential is outstanding. Therefore, the project can be used as an educational tool across Europe and around the word.
Center, Anchor, Crystallization Point
The English version of the exhibition “The Legacy of the Girls of Room 28” will be the center, anchor and Crystallization Point of our project and the basic tool to connect and cooperate with European partners. The English version of the exhibition has been sponsored by the European Commision and shown on occasion of the Holocaust Remembrance Day in January 2013 in Brussels and, on reccomendation of the European Commission, in January 2014 in the United Nations in Geneva. For more information download the flyer.

The exhibition "The Legacy of the Girls of Room 28" will be the Crystallization Point for common activities around the subject – concerts, readings, workshops, theatre-performances.
The panels will move from one European country to the other. Each partner is asked to ensure the translation of the panels in their own language and add the translaton in form of sheets or a booklet to take along into the exhibition.
New chapters will be added to the exhibition by our partners showing their special connection to the story and individual approach to the history behind.
Thus the exhibition will evolve, with every partner, into a tool for linking European partners together. to learn from each other and to develop mutual understanding.
Together we will develop a vision for a better world and help bring about a better presence and future.
The opening of the exhibition in each country will be organized together (concert, reading etc.) and accompanied by workshops with the partners involved.
The workshops serve as our platform to organize further common events, develop new ideas for the next opening and introduce the Room 28 Educational Project and develop it on a European basis.
Theatre-workshops based on the story of the "Girls of Room 28" are offered to our partners by a theatre-director who has proved to profoundly understand the essence of the project - the importance of Art, Creativity and Humanity - and his talent to bring it on stage.
We will look for a sponsor to create a special prize awarded to young people who have done something in the spirit of Room 28.
