Event description
Join us in sharing the art and story of Holocaust survivor Trudie Strobel

About this Event

While Trudie began stitching to process the story of her survival, her experiences as a child of the pogroms (Russia) and then the Nazis, she kept on stitching until she had created vast tapestries of the history of the Jewish people. We, Maya Savin Miller and Lila Dworsky-Hickey, have created an exhibition that displays these tapestries in hope of sparking greater interest and knowledge about genocide. The viewing of Trudie’s work and a telling of her story provide the opportunity to expose more people to this visceral form of genocide education. Ultimately, we strive to foster greater awareness and empathy as individuals see the Holocaust through the personal eyes of a survivor’s artwork. And as the horrors of oppression and genocide have continued to impact many other cultures and people throughout the world, it is more important than ever that our awareness be a call to action.

This project is supported by the Dragon Kim Foundation, the Righteous Conversations Project, and the Remember Us Project.
