"Through The Eye of The Needle: The Art of Esther Nisenthal Krinitz"
An event commemorating Yom Hashoah (Holocaust Remembrance) and in recognition of Genocide Prevention and Awareness month, Sunday, April 19,  from 7 – 9:30 p.m.,  Congregation Gesher L'Torah, 4320 Kimball Bridge Road, Alpharetta 30022.

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, a 30-minute documentary film explores the capacity of the human heart to heal. Through these reflections, we are reminded that genocide and other acts of baseless hatred are still with us, and that Esther's story, and those like hers, compels us to build a just and peaceful world for all.  

Rachel Peric, Esther’s granddaughter, will guide us through the screening and a discussion of the documentary.  We will also hear from Embracing Tolerance, cosponsor for this event, whose mission is to promote awareness of the dangers of prejudice, hatred, and intolerance, and whose programs foster tolerance, good citizenship and character development by teaching respect, compassion, and personal responsibility. 


Older children and teens are encouraged to come with their families as history comes alive through memory and art. 


The extraordinary documentary film has been screened at nearly two dozen film festivals, across the country and abroad, and won several festival audience choice awards as well as the professionally-juried CINE Golden Eagle award, TIVA Silver Medal and the Docs-in-Progress Alumni Arts in Focus award. In April 2012, the film had its television premiere on Maryland Public Television, reaching more than 12,000 viewers and in 2013 was broadcast by numerous public TV stations across the country.

The exhibit of Esther’s artwork, Fabric of Survival, was on display at the Breman Museum some years ago.  For more information, visit the Art & Remembrance Foundation at www.artandremembrance.org.
