Holocaust Wall Hangings and Portraits at the Maltz

Threads of Remembrance: Artistic Visions of the Holocaust:
Dec. 13, 2006 through Feb. 18, 2007

A stirring exhibition, it visually complements the Maltz Museum's permanent collection by addressing the horrors of the Holocaust as seen through the eyes of survivors and their families. Threads of Remembrance: Artistic Visions of the Holocaust is a dramatic display of 45 textile masterpieces. With consummate skill, profound emotion and a remarkable depth of understanding, Judith Weinshall Liberman uses designs on soft fabric to question and explore the cold brutality of the Holocaust. The exhibition also features a portion of 50 Faces, an incredible photographic journey by Herbert Ascherman, Jr., that captures the faces and stories of 50 Northeast Ohio Holocaust survivors, POWs and concentration camp liberators.
