Exhibition: The Girls of Room 28

English version (2010)

Presentations with survivors of Room 28.

Israel, 2010

We presented the panels for the first time on 23 January 2010 in Beit Yitzak, when children of the German and Israel Brundibár ensemble met with survivors of Room 28.

Goethe Institute, Tel Aviv, 25 January 2010

The panels were also shown during our event in the Enav Center and  on 25 January 2010 in the Goethe Institute in Tel Aviv.


The first  English exhibition was created for display in Israel, as part of the German-Israel project by the Children Gewandhaus Choir Leipzig: Brundibár, an opera connecting Israel and Germany. The project was sponsored by the German Government (Der Beauftragte der Bundesregierung für Kultur und Medien.) When the project ended, the panels were stored in the Goethe Institute in Tel Aviv and were never shown again.

Thanks to the translator of the exhibtion, the historical tour guide Gabriel Fawcett,  a new reproduction of the exhibition came to London. Helga Gross née Weiss, the former carer of "The Girls of Room 28", joined the event. Here she is in front of the panel showing her and her fellow carers from Room 28.
Further exhibitions followed in English private schools, organized by Gabriel Fawcett, whom we owe special merits for his committment. Thank you, Gabriel!

Since February 2014, after having been in display in the United Nations in Geneva, our English version of the exhibition has been stored away in a container of the transport and storage company zapf umzuege in Berlin and is waiting to be brought to light again.

The company zapf umzuege is sponsering the storage of the exhibition. Therefore: a special thanks for  their generosity! We could not have maintained our exhibition, especially not the model of Room 28, without  the support of this company.
