SLIDE TALK: by Art and Remembrance founders Helene McQuade and Bernice Steinhardt
Art and Remembrance, an arts and educational non-profit based in Maryland, was founded in 2003 to bring the
work and story of Holocaust survivor and fabric artist Esther Nisenthal Krinitz to a wider audience; to maximize
the educational potential of her art and her unique story; and to promote the use of art and personal memoir as
tools for promoting healing and awareness.
