Hands-on Introduction to Sewing Workshop
Hands-on introduction to sewing workshop in conjunction with "Stitching History From the Holocaust."
In 1939, Paul Strnad wrote to his American cousin seeking help for him and his wife Hedy to escape Nazi-occupied Czechoslovakia. Nearly 60 years later, the Strnad family discovered the letter in their basement, along with a packet of Hedy's dress designs. Hedy and Paul Strnad did not survive, but their story is brought to life through the contemporary creation of Hedy's designs and the piecing together of this couple's history.
"Stitching History From the Holocaust" is an original exhibit created by and on loan from Jewish Museum Milwaukee.
Funding for the New York presentation of this exhibition is made possible through the generous support of The Coby Foundation, Ltd.; David Geffen Foundation; and other philanthropic supporters.
