A Holocaust survivor's remembrances in uniquely beautiful stitched images and vivid accounts bring an uplifting life story to the screen.

More than 40 years after the Holocaust, Esther Nisenthal Krinitz depicted her remarkable story of survival through a stunningly beautiful series of 36 fabric collage and embroidery panels. Through Esther’s own words and images of her artwork, as well as interviews with her daughters and others,this 30-minute film explores the capacity of the human heart to heal. Through these reflections, we are reminded that genocide and acts of baseless hatred are still with us, and that Esther’s story, and those like hers, compel us to build a just and peaceful world for all.

Written, produced and directed by Nina Shapiro-Perl; an Art and Remembrance production. To learn more about Esther Krinitz, including information about exhibits and events, and to buy the DVD, visit artandremembrance.org.
