Uwe Westphal in conversation with Keren Ben-Horin moderated by Jennifer Altmann.
Berlin was a fashion capital in the 1920s, with hundreds of thriving clothing manufacturers, most of them Jewish, before it was snuffed out by the Nazis. Author Uwe Westphal shares this history in a discussion with FIT historian Keren Ben-Horin and journalist Jennifer Altmann, whose grandfather ran one of Berlin’s fashion houses. Enjoy a Q&A during the YouTube premiere of this pre-recorded event.
