Dear Mrs Anna Lenchovska,
   Thank Mr Zissels very much for his answer.
      I understand the funding problems and the little room available.
       If this is the problem I would reduce the quantity of exhibits but
include all periods.
          If it was my choice I would start with the Holocaust ,but a small
           but comprehensive exhibit would also be very satisfactory.
               Please let us know in what language Mr Zissels corresponds.
                  I would very much like to write him directly.
                    Thank you again for your answer
                                   Hardy Breier
