Through The Eye Of The Needle – The Art of Nisenthal Krinitz

As an older woman, Esther was determined to share childhood memories of family, loss and Holocaust survival in Poland with her children and grandchildren. But it is the way she told her story—through 36 panels of fabric collage and embroidery—that makes it all the more extraordinary. Through images of her artwork, Esther’s own words from before her death and interviews with her daughters and others, the film (Work-in-Progress, WJFF 2009) explores the toll of suffering and the capacity of the human heart to heal.
