Room 28 Letter, December 2019
Dear friends and donators,weiterlesen
there was hardly time and energy left this year for promotion and broader communication; my capacities were limited and focused on creating the new Czech edition of the Compendium to the Room 28 Educational Project and further teaching material. This is a project funded by the German Foreign Ministry. I am happy that it will soon be done. In January 2020 the first copies will be printed and given to all involved, especially to our Czech partner, the Svobodná základní škola, a free Waldorf School a few miles away from Terezin.
The next step is to make German and English versions of the new parts and produce special teaching units. Altogether these components form what is conceived as a collection of growing teaching material. Our project is work in process, and the brochures are a means to convey the fundamental frame and structure, the most important messages and aspects and to illustrate with exemplary chapters the concept behind. This year a small circle of pedagogues teamed up with Alexander Wolf. They continue on this road, create further material suitable for individual teaching practice and are ready to work for the project in many other ways.
You see: there is no standstill. There is still a lot to do! We are keen to move forward. However, a lot can only be done with financial support. Just imagine the time and work needed for the digitization of the extensive audio- and film archives of Room 28 Projects (see gallery-photo) We plan to add audio-and film stations to the exhibition and will do it together with the film-production “zeitgebilde.de” . We are also planning a documentary about "The Girls of Room 28" and our project.
Thank you for being so kind and generous to support our project in the last year! We rely on strong support to keep on working in order to unfold the potential of the project. Most of you know, there is a vision behind, and there is still a long way to go. But it is worth it. Because, as Karen Zolko, the producer of the Brazilian exhibition As meninas do quarto 28 put it
Room 28 is a tool for a better world, for a better future.
Therefore we ask you to support our project again. It would mean to help secure our full ability to realize our plans. You can read more about it in www.room28.net/newsletter
I am sending you and your beloved our Season greetings along with our best wishes for a happy New Year. May peace, happiness and health be on your side all through the year 2020 and thereafter.
With kindest regards,
