Our cooperation dates back to the year 2005, when the Hans Krása's opera Brundibár was staged by this choir and our exhibition was on display at the Gewandhaus. On 22 January 2008 we invited the Choir to the opening of the exhibition in the German Parliament and in the Academy of Arts (photo). In 2010 we took part in the choir’s German-Israel project Brundibár – a children’s opera bringing Germany and Israel together.
