Quotes from the invitation of the European Commission, Brussels, January 2013:
"The story of Room 28 is a story of compassion and resilience of human spirit. The girls were looked after by the adults who made best of their effort to create as normal as possible conditions in the ghetto and to help the children to continue with their lives, to learn and develop their talents. Many of those adults perished during the Holocaust but their loving care remained in the memory of those girls who survived.
After the end of the war the girls from the Room 28 left for many corners of the world and established their lives in Israel, United States, Russia, Britain, Sweden, Germany, Austria and Czechoslovakia. It took several decades before they met again. It was only in 1991 when arrival of democracy to central and eastern Europe allowed that the girls to get together. They kept meeting since 1991 and as a result put together a project assisted by Hannelore Brenner-Wonschick which aims at passing their memory to the young generation."
