This year, Chancellor Merkel delivered the keynote address.
At the gala benefit for the „Room of Names“, Federal Chancellor Dr. Angela Merkel gave the keynote address. This honor is reserved for important political personalities, and Dr. Merkel’s predecessors were former Chancellor Dr. Helmut Kohl and Avi Primor, the former Ambassador of Israel to Germany.

Prof. Lea Rosh

Prof. Lea Rosh is delighted with the support and appeals to the German citizens to make a contribution:


"The world-famous Field of Steles provides the image of the holocaust memorial, but underneath, it never stops developing: in the underground Information Center, the thematic rooms are not completed, the exhibitions are always works in progress. That is very expensive and only possible because of donations. We are glad that the Chancellor, but also Anne Will, Iris Berben and Angelika Domröse as well as Heinrich Haasis support us in our important mission. The German business sector will have many representatives at this year’s Charity Dinner. But every individual citizen can support us, for example by donating securely online through our website. " 



Use of the Charity Dinner proceeds.

The urgently needed funds raised by this dinner are contributed without any reductions to the current donation campaign 60 x 6.000 for the Room of Names.
