Synopsis: Welcomed by educators, artists, students, historians as well as the Holocaust community, The Stones Weep by Miriam Brysk and Margaret Lincoln is a uniquely engaging and effective Holocaust Education book that combines multiple aspects of a survivor s art emotional, impressionistic digital creations with teacher-created and tested lesson plans that meet State and National Core Curriculum Standards, including an online lesson available in Moodle. In so doing, this book provides new perspectives for teaching and learning about the Holocaust.
The rare partnership of Holocaust survivor, artist, author, and professor, Miriam Brysk, PhD, along with Library-of-Congress American Memory Fellow and District Librarian at Lakeview, Michigan schools, Margaret Lincoln, PhD, affords an unprecedented opportunity to explore the Holocaust in both singularly personal and global historic contexts.
About the Author:
Miriam M. Brysk is a Holocaust child survivor from Warsaw, Poland. She was interned in the Lida ghetto in Belarus, then escaped with her parents and joined the nearby partisans in the Lipiczany forest. She came to America in 1947 with no previous formal education, yet went on to obtain her Ph.D. from Columbia University, and had a career as a scientist and medical school professor. After retiring, she became an artist and writer depicting the plight of the Jews during the Holocaust. She has created three major art exhibits: In a Confined Silence in 2005 (partially funded by a grant the WK Kellogg Foundation), Children of the Holocaust in 2008 and Scroll of Remembrance in 2013. She has had some 25 solo exhibits. Three of her works are part of the permanent art collection at Yad Vashem, and one is included in a book published by the museum in 2010 Virtues of Memory: Six Decades of Survivors Creativity.
