Esther Nisenthal Krinitz’s collage from 1991 titled “On Friday, October 15, 1942, it was the beginning of the end, the somber march of the Rachow Jews to their deaths”

Remembrance through art. To honor Yom HaShoah, Congregation Kol Shofar is displaying life-size photographs of fabric art created by the late Esther Nisenthal Krinitz, a survivor whose art reflected her memories from pre-war Poland through the Holocaust. A trained seamstress with no formal art education, she began her craft more than 30 years after World War II, when she lived in the United States. Krinitz’s daughter, Bernice Steinhardt, will speak to mark the opening of this exhibit at Kol Shofar; also, a new Holocaust memorial will be dedicated. 4 p.m. Sunday, April 27 at Kol Shofar, 215 Blackfied Drive, Tiburon.
