In 1939, Paul Strnad sent a desperate letter to his cousin in Milwaukee in hopes the relative could help them emigrate from Prague after the Nazi invasion. The letter contained eight dress designs created by Hedy Strnad (Paul’s wife). They hoped their cousin could find a manufacturer for the dresses. Seventy-five years later, Hedy’s dresses are on display at the Jewish Museum Milwaukee.
