Public Events

This section is designed to provide information to the public about the programs which are both funded by DHF and open to the public. Many of these programs run for multiple months, and cannot easily be reflected on our Calendar. We encourage you to bookmark this page and visit the links of our grantees, so that you can attend DHF-sponsored public programs often!

Fabric of Survival:  Images of the Art of Esther Nisenthal Krinitz

December 2016-January 2017
At the Lewes Public Library

More than 40 years after the Holocaust, Ester Nisenthal Krinitz depicted her remarkable story of survival through a stunningly beautiful series of 36 fabric collage and embroidery panels. She depicted in vivid color and exquisite detail one young girl’s eyewitness account of the war and scenes of tragedy and trauma juxtaposed with the beauty of the natural surroundings.

Art and Remembrance has created a traveling exhibit of this extraordinary art work which will be displayed from Friday, December 9, 2016 until Thursday, January 5, 2017 at the Lewes Public Library during their normal operating hours.
