In this video, researchers, artists, and war widows share the stories behind a new piece of art: the War Widows’ Quilt. The War Widows’ Quilt was made by over 90 war widows. This deeply emotional artwork represents shares loss and the untold history of the widows that war leaves behind. Each square in the quilt and each poem tells stories of grief, survival, love, hope, and new beginnings. Making the quilt gave opportunities for the women involved to tell their stories on their own terms and in their own words.
