Broken Threads tells the story of the destruction of the Jewish fashion industry under the Nazis.Jewish designers were very prominent in the fashion industry of 1930s Germany and Austria. The emergence of Konfektion, or ready-to-wear, and the development of the modern department store, with its innovative merchandising and lavish interior design, only emphasized this prominence. The Nazis came to see German high fashion as too heavily influenced by Jewish designers, manufacturers and merchandisers. These groups were targeted with a campaign of propaganda, boycotts, humiliation and Aryanization.Broken Threads chronicles this moment of cultural loss, detailing the rise of Jewish design and its destruction at the hands of the Nazis. Superbly illustrated with photographs and fashion plates from the collection of Claus Jahnke, Broken Threads explores this little-known part of fashion and of Nazi history.

“Richly illustrated and clearly written--it illumines both visually and intellectually the role of Jews in German culture and commerce and the creative contribution of Jews to German and Austrian national life. By focusing on one industry, Broken Threads explores in rich detail some of the largest issues in both Weimar culture and the Nazi assault against the Jews.” ―Michael Berenbaum, former Project Director, The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum
“The vibrant rags-to-riches spectrum of direct Jewish involvement in the fashion industries of Germany and Austria is brought to life in this important new book which details the insidious dismantling and destruction of an entire culture.” ―Sima Godfrey, Director, Institute for European Studies, University of British Columbia

Dimensions: 10.6in. x 7.0in. x 0.6in.By now, it would seem that every facet of the Nazi attack on Jewish culture had been told. But the destruction of the Jewish fashion industry in Germany and Austria adds an astounding new chapter to the story. Here, Roberta S. Kremer traces the wanton destruction of a thriving fashion industry whose impact on German high fashion was regarded by the Reich as being too heavily influenced by Jewish designers, manufacturers, and merchandisers. The emergence of ready-to-wear and the development of the modern department store with its innovative merchandising and lavish interior design attracted the attention of the Nazis, who proceeded with a campaign of boycotts, humiliation, and Aryanization. Broken Threads includes photographs and fashion plates that tragically illustrate the social and cultural losses suffered during this period. This item ships from multiple locations.
