Room 28 Projects
The centrality of art, culture and education in civic values
Room 28 Projects originates with the story of a unique group of Holocaust survivors, the ‘Girls of Room 28, L 410, Theresienstadt’. This story glows with the mighty power of art, culture and education in civic values, brought to life by the surviving Girls of Room 28.
These girls, who were then aged 12-14 and are now grandmothers, have sworn themselves to a mission of commemoration and the survival of the values that once nurtured their young lives and continue to do so today.
Room 28 Projects has conceived varied and vivid cultural projects in order to fulfil this mission.
This mission is supported by the NPO Room 28 e.V. Please visit our website: www.room28.net
You can explore Room 28 Projects by reading the book ‘The Girls of Room 28’, watching the theatre-play ‘Ghetto-Tears 1944’, by hosting or visiting the traveling exhibition ‘The Girls of Room 28, L 410, Theresienstadt and by learning more about my forthcoming publication Helga’s Diary.
You can share in many opportunities and activities inspired by the girls’ story: openings of the exhibition, readings, encounters between survivors of Room 28 and young people, educational and cultural projects.
An international educational project is on the way initiated by the historian Gabriel Fawcett and Room 28 Education.
