The embroidered book

This embroidered book was made by my grandmother rachel cohen. She lived next door to my family .all my childhood.while I was seeting on her lap as a child ,she told again and again what happened at the camps. Each time from different point of view. The book is so meaningfool to me. the storytelling  was accompanied by pictures , smells, food and a lot of sensual demonstrations.  She brought tto life the spirit of Indonesia and the era..  I am the third generation of the embroidered book and its special spirit. I tell now those stories to my daughters.  I hope this book will sperad its wings . Thank you to oded for his special effort and to the museum for this imprtant exhibition and the special way my grandmother is remembered.
