Replete with extraordinary full-color images, Holocaust Heroes: Fierce Females, Tapestries and Sculpture by Linda Stein, includes a foreword by Gloria Steinem, and essays by notable scholars and intimates, as well as the artist.
A page-turner, this book tells the story of Stein's traveling exhibition and educational initiatives, celebrating ten female heroes during the time of the Holocaust. It inspires readers to re-imagine their own roles as Brave Upstanders protecting the well-being of others against bullies and bigots.
Obsessed with the theme of protection since 9/11, artist-activist Linda Stein has been drawn to researching the Holocaust, finding that while many people have been recognized for their courage during these horrific times, less attention has been placed on the women who made a difference. With her art, she starts conversations of power and vulnerability through a lens of gender, and provokes questions and dialogue about the continuum between the Exemplar and the Perpetrator.
