About the exhibit:
Opening for the first time in Pittsburgh, the traveling exhibit “Stitching History from the Holocaust” tells the heartbreaking story of a young female Jewish fashion designer who was desperate to win a visa and escape the Nazis in her native Czechoslovakia. Her attempt failed, and she was murdered; but nearly 70 years later, a brilliant decision was made to bring her dusty designs to life, and her fashion-forward clothing collection of dresses, hats, gloves and coats will be on display at the Holocaust Center in a testament to remembering all of those whose talent we lost because of hate.
The Holocaust Center of Pittsburgh is proud to host “Stitching History from the Holocaust”, on loan from the Jewish Museum Milwaukee.
