Lest We Forget
The Holocaust did not begin with Kristallnacht in 1938 nor with Auschwitz in 1940. As early as 1933, Fred Amram was born in a Catholic Infants Home because Jewish mothers no longer had access to public or Jewish hospitals. In an exhibition of multi-media works, textile artist Sandra Brick translates Amram’s stories into visual art. We learn about the forgotten early days of the Holocaust and about a Jewish refugee family coming to America, absorbing a new language and adapting to a new culture.
