Description

"A work of beauty: breathtaking tapestries, combined with a sensitive, poignant narrative of how art prevailed over suffering in the life and work of one survivor. Stitched & Sewn is medicine for one's eyes and heart."
-- David Fishman, author of The Book Smugglers and professor of history at the Jewish Theological Seminary of America

"Stitched & Sewn is a testament to the profound power of the human experience; the ability to endure the worst atrocities and then create meaning and indelible beauty is a buoying, wondrous thing. That three artists from different media--writer Jody Savin, photographer Ann Elliott Cutting, and tapestry artist Trudie Strobel--came together to realize this book reminds us that all of our life's work, including that of survival, is autobiography. You won't soon forget the stories captured here, in words and images."
-- Alison Singh Gee, author of Where the Peacocks Sing

"Stitched & Sewn is a cautionary tale of what happens when a society loses its humanity. Trudie Strobel's story reveals the emotional carnage of surviving the Holocaust and the cost of silence, and it's a testament to the healing properties of art and documenting impossible pain. Strobel literally stitches together tapestries of memory and Jewish life, and in doing so implores us to face the ugliest chapters of history, and to never forget them."
-- Michelle Brafman, author of Washing the Dead and Bertrand Court

"When there are no words, art is the storyteller, each stitch a story. Stitched & Sewn is an incredibly beautiful, haunting journey, showing the power of art to integrate us and cultivate healing."
-- Tina Payne Bryson, PhD, LCSW, co-author of The Whole-Brain Child and The Power of Showing Up, and the author of Bottom Line for Baby
