THE STORY OF THE SQUARE
Quilt 1, Square 12
Artist: Josephine Knight, nee Eberstark
Josephine, Alice, and Ella Eberstark were sent out by their parents Salamon and Sidonia Eberstark from Trstena, Orava in Czechoslovakia, with the last-but-one Kindertransport, organized by Nicolas Winton, a young English banker.
Parents, grandparents, aunts and cousins were all murdered in Auschwitz.
The beautiful little synagogue in Trstena is shown here as it was — and as two of the sisters found it after the war. It had been converted into a grain storage.
