Silent Witness: the story of Lola Rein and her dress

This small and powerful exhibition from the US Holocaust Museum tells how Lola Rein escaped the Nazis by hiding for seven months, spending the days in a 4x6-foot hole dug below a barn, with three other Jews. Rein was eight years old when she went into hiding on a summer day, wearing a dress embroidered by her mother, a talented seamstress. In 2002, Rein donated the dress to the Holocaust Museum, and told her story to curators. The Web exhibition's use of Flash animation and video allows visitors to see the dress close up, watch Rein talk about her time in hiding, and experience human memory embodied in an object.
