The exhibition The Girls of Room 28, L 410 Theresienstadt has been created in 2004 in Germany to fulfill the wish of survivors to remember the girls who lived with them in Room 28 and were murdered in the Holocaust. They also wished to honour those adults in the Ghetto who took care of them and passed on their knowledge, humanity and hope for a better future.
The exhibition was created in complementation of the book The Girls of Room 28 which appeared some months before the exhibition was opened in September 2004.
The exhibition illustrates the story of 'The Girls of Room 28' using original documents - a diary, a scrapbook, notebooks, poems, letters, essays, photos, drawings - echoes of young lives, traces of lives lost as well as from those who survived. It has been created to give space to the original documents.
A Czech, French and an English version was created. In 2014 a newly designed Brazilian exhibition came to life.
Sorry! Schocken Books does not distribute books in the UK, although I asked them three months ago. Please order books via amazon.
