Fabric of Survival: Images of the Art of Esther Nisenthal Krinitz

Esther Nisenthal Krinitz was a teenager during the Holocaust in Poland and in 1977, at the age of fifty, she began sewing a series of embroidered fabric panels that tell her story of survival.

Though she had no formal background in art, she was trained as a seamstress and she created a collection of 36 fabric pictures of strong, vivid colors and striking details with a sense of folk-like realism. Meticulously stitched words beneath the pictures provide a narrative that illustrates her courage and resilience.

Brought to you by the Council on Culture & Arts (COCA) and the Holocaust Education Resource Council (HERC), this exhibition is accompanied by the works of local photographer Mike
