Bernice Steinhardt -- Memories of Survival -- Gables
Jan 30 2013 6:30 pm
IN COLLABORATION WITH MIAMI JEWISH FILM FESTIVAL: In this beautiful 64-page picture book, Memories of Survival (Art & Remembrance, $15.99), Esther Nisenthal Krinitz tells her story of survival during the Holocaust through her art and narrative. The accompanying text by her daughter, Bernice Steinhardt, adds historical detail, context and interpretation. Told in more than 30 remarkable panels with vivid colors and striking details, Esther's story describes a young girl's harrowing escape from the Nazis to freedom in America. While a beautiful gift for both children and adults, it is also an educational resource for teachers exploring the Holocaust and themes of social justice and tolerance. Meet Esther this evening, through a preview of the award-winning documentary film Through the Eye of the Needle: The Art of Esther Nisenthal Krinitz and a lecture and book signing by Bernice Steinhardt, Esther's daughter and co-author of Memories of Survival.
The Miami Jewish Film Festival will host the Florida Premiere of Through the Eye of the Needle the following evening, Thursday, January 31 at 6:30 pm at the Regal Cinema South Beach 18. For information about the screening and tickets: http://miamijewishfilmfestival.org
