Art And Remembrance Home Page
Excerpted from the website:
- Art and Remembrance, a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) corporation, was founded in 2003 by Bernice Steinhardt and Helene McQuade. As the daughters of Holocaust survivor Esther Nisenthal Krinitz, we grew up with the stories of our mother’s courage and suffering as a child during the war. Years later, after Esther began to turn her stories into a narrated series of fabric art pictures, we realized that art and story combined had enormous power. Together, art and story could help people understand not only what war and intolerance are, but also how it feels to those who endure them.
