Set of 10 patterns for menswear

Object | Accession Number: 2005.229.7 a-j

Group of men’s clothing patterns created by Moritz Wacs for his tailor’s shop in Shanghai. The Wacs family left Vienna for Shanghai soon after Kristallnacht in November, 1938. Nazi Germany had annexed Austria in March 1938 and the persecution of Jews was increasingly violent. In 1943, the Japanese, who controlled Shanghai, forced most Jewish refugees into ghettos. Conditions were very harsh, but Ilie’s family survived the war.
