Visit this new and profound exhibit about the impact of the Holocaust. In 1939 Hedwig and Paul Strnad of Prague sent a letter to Milwaukee cousin Alvin Strnad pleading for help to come to the United States.  They included 8 of Hedwig’s dress designs to show that they would be employable here.  Despite Alvin’s best attempts, Paul and Hedwig were not able to come to this country and they perished in the Holocaust. The Museum has had Hedwig’s dresses actually created to honor her legacy and to remember all of the talent lost in the Holocaust.
