Holocaust Museum to Host "Keep Calm and Carry On"

A presentation this month at the Illinois Holocaust Museum and Education Center in Skokie will showcase textiles from the WWII era.

The Illinois Holocaust Museum and Education Center will host the Midwest premiere of Keep Calm and Carry On: Textiles on the Home Front in WWII Britain, the Skokie Review reports. During the hardship, rationing and deprivation in Britain during World War II, designers created fashions to save on wartime materials. This injected a patriotic sense of style and beauty into the harsh realities of wartime life. They were created as a way to literally wear your patriotism on your sleeve, which encouraged everyone to "Keep Calm and Carry On."

The new presentation at the museum is filled with actual wartime fashion and textiles from Britain. The program will be held on Sunday, September 29th , 2013.
