The time has come to join forces with those all over the world who share our values and who are ready to support our project "The Legacy of the Girls of Room 28".
In March 2021 we started a donation campaign over the platform "Betterplace". As most of you know, it is our aim to maintain, to keep alive and to tell the story of "The Girls of Room 28", to share what is so special about their experiences and messages and to make their precious Theresienstadt legacy part of our collective memory.
One of our next steps is to develop our Room 28 Educational Project and the teaching material and to maintain and develop the exhibition. Our vision is to create - wherever the seeds will grow - a very special extra-curriculum place of learning about and experiencing what is essential in life, to expand our international network and encourage international cooperation.
In order to promote our cause, to enhance the energy, the forces and resources required to realize our aims, we are now establishing a Circle of Friends and you are welcome to be part.
The platform "Betterplace" offers us a tool for sending out newsletters to those who like to stay informed. Therefore, if you like to share and support our cause , we would ask you to donate over this platform, if only a symbolic amount, so we can easily keep you updated. However, though money is a necessary means to realize our plans, ideas, values and a vision are the heart of it. So if you want to support us in whatever way possible, get in touch with us.
This listing started on 7 March 2021, and will be continued chronologically. Off course we only name those who give their consent.

Handa Pollak, one of "The Girls of Room 28" who lives in Israel, wrote on 24 April 2021: "Dear Hannelore, I agree with pleasure to become one of the circle of friends and I wish you full energy to continue all your plans. Handa."
