On September 11, 2009, the day our educational exposition was opened, a soccer tournament in memory of the soccer players of the “Theresienstadt League” was held at Givat Hayim-
Ihud. Teams representing the second and third generation after the Holocaust, participated in the tournament - with their families attending, too. All those present received explanations at our
museum. The exhibition was officially opened in the presence of the players, members of our association and, most important, the survivors who had played in the Theresienstadt League.
After the opening of the exhibition a soccer tournament was held in spirit of the ghetto competitions, the teams consisting of 7 players each, as in those days. The tournament took
place under the patronage of HP and the Ted Arrison Fund,in cooperation with the Sport Department of Emek Hefer, with support of the Isr. Ministry of Culture and Sport, organized by “football-state”, with the intent to make it into an annual event.
