Before she was an international fashion icon and a member of the TIME 100, Diane von Furstenberg was a young girl growing up with parents who had just survived the Holocaust. Her father, originally from Moldova, escaped the Nazis in Switzerland. Her mother, originally from Greece, fought the Nazis as a member of the resistance until she was captured and sent to Auschwitz. Join the Museum for a conversation with von Furstenberg about her identity as the daughter of survivors and how it has informed her remarkable career at the helm of one of the world’s most recognizable brands. She will be in conversation with Dr. Eva Fogelman, renowned psychologist and author of the Pulitzer Prize-nominated book Conscience and Courage: Rescuers of Jews During the Holocaust.
