Interesting topic, Nikki!
It's not needlework, but there is that amazing painting by Picasso 
called "Guernica," which would definitely constitute an artistic 
response to a terrible tragedy.
I think it's really the only Picasso I actually kinda like, and the 
whole cubist thing rather perfectly depicts the terror and chaos.
There are a whole bunch of paintings (by Goya?), depicting events in 
Spain in the early 19th century.  Music commemorating various 
significant disasters, of course.  I'm sure not coming up with 
needlework items, though, outside of the AIDS quilt....
