Berlin/Germany, May 2014
I am inviting you to explore the new Website of Room 28 Projects which tells you, in various media, the story of young Jewish prisoners, 'The Girls of Room 28', Ghetto Theresienstadt'. And I want to share with you an outstanding cultural, historical and educational project that originates in an alliance with a special group of Holocaust survivors living scattered in the world.
So much evolved since 2004 from the project, that I had to delete the old Website and create this new one in order to show you the amazing international charisma and impact of the story of 'The Girls of Room 28'.
I am happy to introduce to you Karen Zolko, my friend and partner in São Paulo. With her the project entered a new era and came to life in Brazil.
She is the Director of Room 28 Projects - Brasil, and realized an outstanding new exhibition 'As Meninas do Quarto 28', first shown on 22 May 2014 in the MuBE Museum, São Paulo.
Room 28 Projects - Brasil came to life in 2013 with a discovery, a desire and by virtue of Karen's passionate determination: to remember the fate of the girls of Room 28 and with it also a girl who is very special for her and her mother: Erika Stránská.
Impressions from the exhibition 'As Meninas do Quarto 28' here.
