NCSML presents "Stitching History From the Holocaust" (Exhibit)

November 21, 2020 – March 21, 2021

Where: National Czech & Slovak Museum & Library, Cedar Rapids, Iowa

Stitching History From the Holocaust uses the narrative of one couple to explore the Holocaust by bringing to life the innovative dress designs of Hedy Strnad. Hedy and her husband Paul originally sent these designs to Paul’s cousins in America (Milwaukee) as part of their effort to escape Prague in 1939. That effort ultimately failed, and these beautiful dresses serve not only as a unique memorial for a lost talent, but also as a touchstone for discussion about the human cost of the Holocaust and the plight of refugee populations.

Original exhibition developed by Jewish Museum Milwaukee (JMM). View expanded online exhibit information from JMM here.
