The Art and Story of Esther Nisenthal Krinitz: Her Daughters Remember

This illustrated lecture will feature sisters Helene McQuade and Bernice Steinhardt as they talk about the textile art of their mother, Esther Nisenthal Krinitz. 

Esther Nisenthal Krinitz was 12 in 1939 when the Nazis came to her Polish village. She remembers every detail through a series of exquisitely embroidered fabric collages. Her art is an eyewitness account of tragedy and healing.

"What Krinitz did was re-create her world in a way that is somehow truer and more vivid than a photograph or film." ~ Megan Rosenfeld, Washington Post
