About

Linda Stein is an artist, activist, lecturer, and performer who explores gender roles and inspires compassion, empathy and bravery. In her new Holocaust Heroes: Fierce Females tapestry and sculpture series, Stein highlights 10 female heroes of the Holocaust who stood up to violence and oppression.

Through the use of fabric, metal, text and mixed media, Stein communicates the stories of heroic women, honoring positive female role models who are traditionally neglected in heroic narratives. The tapestries tell the amazing stories of women including:

  • Ruth Gruber, an American correspondent who traveled throughout post-liberation Europe to interview and photograph displaced Holocaust survivor refugees, conveying their treatment to the world;
  • Noor Inayat Khan, a Special Operations Executive agent, who was the first female radio operator to be sent from Britain to aid the French resistance; and
  • Vitka Kempner, a leader of the United Partisan Organization’s armed resistance in the Vilna ghetto.

 

Between March 3 and 29, she is artist-in-residence at the Morris Squire Foundation, and will be holding events both at CBB and the Jewish Federation of Greater Santa Barbara. Her CBB appearances are cosponsored by The Morris Squire Foundation and made possible by CBB’s Toby Parisse Fund.
