The Amazing Art of Holocaust Survivor Esther Krinitz

by Brett Leveridge

At the age of 50, Esther Nisenthal Krinitz began to create amazing tapestries in her Brooklyn apartment that told the story of her survival during the Holocaust. “When she saw how moved my sister and I were [by her artwork], she kept sewing,” says Esther's daughter, Bernice Steinhardt. Bernice and her sister, Helene McQuade, founded Art and Remembrance, a non-profit dedicated to sharing their mother’s experience and illuminating works of art.
