Through The Eye of the Needle: The Art of Esther Nisenthal Krinitz

Sorry, there are no airings at this time. Please check this page for future updates.
This award-winning 28-minute documentary tells Esther Nisenthal Krinitz's story of survival using unique stitched images. Krinitz was 15 years old in October of 1942 when the Jews of her village in Poland were ordered by the Nazis to report to a nearby train station. Esther refused to go. Instead, saying goodbye to their family, she and her 13-year-old sister Mania invented new identities for themselves as Polish Catholic farm girls, hiding in plain sight from the Nazis. Esther's story of survival is remarkable on its own, but it is all the more extraordinary because of her method of storytelling -- stitching and embroidering.
