Esther Nisenthal Krinitz was 15 in 1942 when Nazis ordered the Jews of her Polish village to report to a nearby train station. She chose to flee with her 13-year-old sister, never to see the rest of her family again. Decades later, determined to show her daughters the family she had lost, Esther created a series of 36 exquisite works of fabric collage and embroidery—a legacy of love, grief and the sheer force of memory. One of these panels is featured in the latest DAR Museum exhibition, “Sewn in America: Making – Meaning – Memory”

Join her daughter, Bernice Steinhardt, for a talk as she shares images of her mother’s work along with her memories of their creation.

Speaker: Bernice Steinhardt, President of Art and Remembrance

The event is free, but pre-registration is requested. This event is taking place in-person but will be streaming online.
