Fabric of Survival

Columbus Museum of Art – Showing through June 15.

At first glance, the colorful needlework collages in Fabric of Survival: The Art of Esther Nisenthal Krinitz seem to depict bucolic scenes of the Polish countryside. On closer examination, they tell a horrific tale of survival. Esther (1927-2001) and her younger sister Mania were the only members of their family, and among the few Jews in their Polish village, to survive the Holocaust. More about the exhibit here.

This exhibit was made possible through a grant from the Columbus Jewish Foundation.
