In 1942, when the Nazis ordered the Jews of the town of Mniszek in Poland to report for “relocation,” 15-year-old Esther Nisenthal and her 13-year-old sister broke away from the rest of the villagers and evaded the Gestapo by pretending to be Catholic farm girls. After the war, Esther married a fellow survivor and moved to the United States. At age 50, she began creating works of art using fabric and yarns to share her story of enduring the Holocaust. The Fabric of Survival is a traveling exhibition composed of high-quality photographic reproductions of the original fabric work of Esther Krinitz circulated by Art and Remembrance  (https://artandremembrance.org/about/esther-krinitz/).

Please contact the office if you would live to arrange a time to visit the exhibit.
