Basic literature to the Educational Room 28 Project. Yearbook 2017

This brochure (as well as the original German edition, the "Kompendium 2016") is the basic and key literature for the international Room 28 Educational Project.

It serves to acquaint schools and universities, professors, teachers, students and people active in the field of culture, art and Holocaust remembrance with the story of and the project with "The Girls of Room 28.  Ghetto Theresienstadt"

It is conceived as a yearbook.  A new brochure will be published and include new chapters, contributions, a review and new rpojects and perspectives end of 2018.

US University and Room 28

Together with my Brazilian partners Karen Zolko and Dodi Chansky, directors of Room 28 Projects - Brasil, who realized the excellent exhibition "As Meninas do Quarto 28" in Brazil, we are looking  for an American University interested to partnership with us and bring a new exhibition "The Girls of Room 28" to life and on display in the US, and to anchor the educational project in America.

The Brazilian exhibition "As Meninas do Quarto 28" is presented on the website of Room 28 Projects:

Purpose of the "Compendium 2017"

The most essential purpose of the Compendium 2017  is to convey to interested people active in the realm of education and culture a project which started more than 20 years ago in 1996 and which roots in the genuine wish of survivors of Room 28 to tell the story of their childhood.

It is more than a story of the Holocaust, more than a story of the Theresienstadt Ghetto and the Auschwitz concentration camp.  In its core it is a story of the importance of art, culture and education in dark times - a universal and a highly topical issue.

Motives for the project

Helga Pollak-Kinsky at the United Nations, Geneva, 26 January 2014

"Our friends from Theresienstadt and all those we loved and lost in the Holocaust have no grave where we can leave a stone in remembrance. That's why we wanted the book, and that's why we wanted the exhibition - as our stones of remembrance."

Anna Hanusová (1930-2014)

"We wish that by remembering our friends of Room 28 and all the wonderful people who took care of us, the human values and achievements will live on which became so important for us: tolerance, empathy, education, culture, friendship and love."

Hanka Weingarten and Handa Drori

One  of the hopes of  our project is, that it be also, as Handa Drori (left) put it:

"a warning for the next generation. And also  an example of how easily a new Holocaust could happen if well-meaning people are unconcerned and allow fanatics to come to power.



The Compendium contains essays about the educational value by three Professors active in the realm of Holocaust remembrance: Peter Gstettner, Bertram Noback and  Detlef Pech. It gives an insight in the teaching materials and conveys two central chapters. It informs about the current state of the project, about offers and plans and project that started.
