Room 28 e.V.

managed by Hannelore Brenner

About us

The NPO Room 28 was founded in 2007 as a circle of friends of "The Girls of Room 28". These are Holocaust survivors who lived together as young girls in the Theresienstadt ghetto, Room 28 of the Girls' Home L410 . The main task of the association is to preserve and to ensure the future of the project of remembrance (Room 28 Projects) developed by the author Hannelore Brenner in close collaboration with survivors of Room 28.
The international project includes the book, the exhibition and the play "The Girls of Room 28", the publicationa of the "Edition Room 28" and the multimedia Room 28 Educational Project presented in the Compendia. In 2023 we realized a Ukrainian edition of the children's book "Brundibár. Wie Aninka und Pepíček den Leierkastenmann besiegten".
The association is financed by donations, membership-contribution and project funding and realized an immense lot of work on a honorary basis. New projects are constantly emerging for which the association is looking for financial support. We need general suppor and active members to ensure the work and future of our NPO.

Auftaktveranstaltung in Rostock

  Hannelore Brenner  05 June 2024 at 08:29 AM

Dear friends,
on May 30, the “LOMIR Theater Project” of the Jewish community in Rostock brought the story of Aninka and Pepíček, as told in the new Brundibár children's book to the stage as part of our project Brundibár-book as a Gift for Ukrainian children. The kids followed the action spellbound and enjoyed the performance, which was presented with great verve and talent - a mixture of text and song, music and scenic play and, at the center: puppets playing the main roles: Aninka and Pepíček, sparrow, cat and dog and, most magnificently, the organ grinder Brundibár. What a wonderful, totally unexpected form of staging!

Viktoria Prokofjeva (text, music piano), the professional puppeteer Ruslan Chrystiakov (text, puppet-player, song) and the director of LOMIR Margarita Vishnyakova were responsible for the lovingly lively artistic realization of the text and music and the scenery. They were joined by young members of the ensemble: Lana Lanina and Leonid Markovych, as well as a small choir of young singers who sang two songs in both Ukrainian and German. At the end, we handed over the Ukrainian edition of the Brundibár book to each child. We were abte to do so thanks to the support of our Foreign Office, who helped us pruduce a Ukrainian edition of the book.

It was a wonderful start!
A big thank you to the “Theaterpojekt LOMIR” in Rostock for this delightful performance!
