Family history come to life: Lost Holocaust-era dress designs uncovered

     This is such  a sad story. This couple sent these dress designs to their relatives in the United States to help get the wife a job and help them get exit visas. Sadly it was not fast enough to save them. The couple did not survive but these sketches do. They are hanging in the Milwaukee holocaust museum. They even actually made dresses from these designs. I cannot hold back my tears. Such beautiful dresses. Imagine what this woman could have created had she lived longer. Words cannot express how  sad it is for these lives to have been cut so short.
