The German version as well as the Czech, French and English version were made with a minimum of budget.


A lot still needs to be done to make the exhibition the way it is    conceived. Due to lack of money this could not be done until today.


There is a rich audio-and film archive in the ownership of Hannelore Brenner waiting to be explored and turned into audio-and film installations for our exhibition and to be integrated in our educational project. And there are many more ideas waiting to be realized.

Room 28 e.V.

In 2007 the Non-Profit Organization Room 28 e.V. was founded in Berlin/Germany to support the project with "The Girls of Room 28". We want this organization to develop into a strong sponsering association for the Room 28 Educational Project in order to guarantee its survival in the future, also when the brain behind and the motor of it, Hannelore Brenner, cannot work on the project any more.

In December 2017 Room 28 e.V. has started a Fundraising Campaign to raise money for the renewal of the exhibition, for developing the teaching material and for establishing a team to work on the project on an international level. We appreciate  any support.

Offer to an institution

It is also possible to hand over the exhibition and project to a congenial institution ready to fulfill the wish and hopes of "The Girls of Room 28" and of the author of the project.
