To date, the Brundibár: Beyond Imagination project has been supported by its creators, small donations and the valuable time of our volunteers and dedicated staff who have all made efforts well beyond their modest salaries and stipends. However, with widespread support for the project concept and commitment from potential mentors, directors, NGO and other institutions, we have yet to realized the financial support that will make this important project a reality.

Brundibár: Beyond Imagination, LLC, in partnership with our 501(C)(3) fiscal sponsors, has been seeking financial support from from government programs, private institutions, NGOs, broadcasting networks, developmental grants, self-initiated fundraising and foundations. To date we have made proposals to, received commitments or funding from the following:

  • Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany, Inc, Miriam Weiner, Director of Allocations:pending financial support from the Rabbi Israel Miller Fund for Shoah Education, Research and Documentation
  • World Holocaust Forum founded by Dr. Viatcheslav Moshe Kantor: confirmed financial support and program affiliation

For close to two years Brundibár: Beyond Imagination has been actively laying the groundwork for the project. During this time we have made great strides in the areas of research, documentation and the creation of a unique structure for the implantation of this ambitious project. To date we have have had the honor to befriend, interview and filmed close to 12 survivors of Theresienstadt, as well as many of their children and grandchildren. Throughout our travels within the United States, Israel and the Czech Republic we have garnered the support of many prominent cultural, institutional and government figures who, without their approval and backing, this project would not be possible. Along the way, we have also brought on a number of helpful volunteers and dedicated and talented staff of five ambitious researchers, historians and filmmakers and writers based in New York, Tel Aviv and Prague.
