The design of this beautiful scarf is an homage to the history of Jewish American culture in New York. Created by Holocaust survivor Hanka Kornfeld-Marder, the Leaves of Rebirth scarf captures the special link between past and present.
In 1941, Holocaust Survivor Hanka Kornfeld-Marder was 13 years old when she was taken on a transport train to Auschwitz. She was saved because Auschwitz was too crowded and could not accept anymore prisoners. Over the next four years, Hanka Kornfeld-Marder was an inmate in four German concentration camps – Faulbrück,Reichenbach, Langbilau, and Peterswaldau – before being liberated on May 8, 1945.
Wearing the Leaves of Rebirth Scarf expresses your desire to make each day a new beginning and a gift of hope for all.
