Stitching History From the Holocaust
Closing on March 1st

Prague 1939: A True Story of Talent Lost. Paul and Hedy Strnad are trapped as the Nazis close in. Can Hedy's dress designs and their cousin in Milwaukee help them to get to the United States?

All efforts failed. Hedy and Paul perished in the Holocaust, but their memory lives on in the letter and sketches which form the core of this haunting exhibit. Come and experience Hedy's designs brought to life.
