This exhibit uses the narrative of one couple to explore the Holocaust. Through the story of Hedwig and Paul Strnad, visitors will build their understanding of transcontinental connections, Bohemian Jewish history, Theresienstadt concentration camp and the fashion industry in Czechoslovakia. The following messages are central to this exhibit:
1) Each victim of the Holocaust has his/her own story that deserves to be remembered.
2) The Holocaust not only took human lives, but also their contributions to our world.
3) The material items around us are an important means of remembering and discerning information about culture and history (drawn designs, dresses, photos, letters, recordings, etc.) .
4) The actions of people in our world today can meaningfully help to remember those lost.
Stitching History From the Holocaust is an original exhibition developed by Jewish Museum Milwaukee.
