The Holocaust Memorial Center Zekelman Family Campus condemns the heinous behavior of white supremacists, antisemites, and racists in Charlottesville. Like millions of others throughout the country and world, we are sickened by the events that unfolded. Our thoughts and prayers go to the grieving families of Heather Heyer, Lieutenant H. Jay Cullen, and Trooper Berke M. M. Bates, as well as those injured as the result of the violence that took place.

For more than 30 years, our mission has been teaching people of all backgrounds about the importance of standing up and speaking out against hateful words and acts. We must work together to ensure all people are safe from prejudiced rhetoric and actions.

Stitching History
from the Holocaust

On view June 22 through December 29, 2017

Featured Dress Illustration from Stitching History ExhibitEight beautiful dresses represent the incalculable loss caused by the Holocaust, in this moving exhibit on loan from the Jewish Museum in Milwaukee (JMM). In 1939, Paul Strnad wrote to his cousin Alvin in Milwaukee. Desperate to obtain an affidavit to escape the onslaught of Nazi Germany, Paul sent Alvin sketches of his wife Hedwig’s dress designs. Paul and Hedy hoped that these examples of her work would provide evidence of their financial independence. Despite Alvin’s best efforts, both Hedy and her husband Paul were murdered in the Holocaust. The JMM worked with the Costume Shop of the Milwaukee Repertory Theater to create the dresses from Hedy’s sketches and to put together this exhibit exploring her life and work. Learn more >
