Archives at Home: Threads of the Past-Recreating Clothing of Holocaust Survivors

ZOOM Online

Heidi Damsky is a talented knitter, a devoted grandmother, and a globetrotter, well-versed in the history of the Holocaust. All of these characteristics converged serendipitously when a friend of Heidi’s shared a pattern for a very special child’s sweater. The pattern replicates a green sweater worn by Krystyna Chiger while hiding from the Nazis in the sewers of Lvov, Poland, from 1943 to 1944. Knitted by her beloved grandmother before the war, the sweater survived Krystyna’s harrowing experience. Heidi knitted a beautiful replica of the sweater and generously donated it Birmingham Holocaust Education Center’s archives. Heidi participated in a similarContinue Reading ...
