Project: Dress and Dignity in the Shoah

 

Being a research fellow at the Sydney Jewish Museum gave me access to a vast collection of archival material and historical artefacts. As a dress historian, being able to handle a garment is so important: to see traces of where a garment was altered, a hem turned or perhaps a secret pocket inserted. But beyond access to the collection, the opportunity to share ideas with and seek the expertise and knowledge of the many experts at the Museum is invaluable
