Join us as we launch our new exhibition “Fashioning a Nation: German Identity and Industry, 1914-1945”
The exhibition explores the powerful history of German fashion from its international impact to its destruction by the Nazi regime. It honors the legacy of the Jewish Germans who contributed to its rise and commemorates the great cultural and economic loss of its demise. The exhibition will be on display at Goethe-Zentrum Atlanta from January 9 – 23, 2017.
