The Dressmakers of Auschwitz

York Army Museum, York
2 July 2023

An online presentation by Lucy Adlington, author of The Dressmakers of Auschwitz.

At the height of the Holocaust 25 young Jewish inmates of Auschwitz-Birkenau were selected to create beautiful fashions for elite Nazi women in a dedicated salon established by the camp commandant's wife.

Historian Lucy Adlington has researched their lives and fates to write a powerful chronicle - The Dressmakers of Auschwitz: a New York Times bestseller.

This virtual presentation, drawn from eyewitness interviews and original garments form the era, is a remarkable tale of resilience, camaraderie and quiet heroism in the most extreme circumstances.
