The Jewish Museum of Milwaukee - 1360 N. Prospect Avenue 53202

The Tyrotarian Committee invites you and your guests to a guided tour of two impressive exhibits now showing at the Jewish Museum of Milwaukee.  The two traveling exhibits highlight haunting experiences relating to the Holocaust in Eastern Europe in World War II:


The Krinitz Fabric of Survival exhibit is a visually stunning presentation of fabric collage and embroidery panels.  Fifteen year old Esther Krinitz and her sister escaped as her family was arrested and taken away by Nazi authorities in Poland.  Fifty years later this untrained artist completed these exquisitely detailed panels so that her daughters could understand her family’s journey through this devastating experience.


The Holocaust by Bullets display describes the mass murder of all the Jewish residents of the small town of Kruchen in Belarus.  Dr. Waitman Wade Beorn carefully researched this relatively unknown event of October 10, 1941.  It is a searing portrait of a professional army’s descent into genocide.


Please note that this Tyrotarian event will begin at 4:30 PM.  After the tour, a social gathering at the Museum will include beverages and snacks.
