Featured Event

Project 70273

North Kent Embroiderers Guild handed over a completed quilt of red crosses to project area co-ordinator Lucy Horner from Francis Iles.
Between January 1940 and August 1941 (before the Holocaust began), 70,273 physically and mentally disabled people – men, women, teens, boys, and girls – were murdered by the Nazis.
Though they never even laid eyes on the disabled person they were evaluating, the Nazi doctors read the medical files and, if from the words on the page, the person was deemed “unfit” or an “economic burden on society”, the doctor placed a red X at the bottom of the form.
Three doctors were to read each medical file, and when two of them made a red X on the page, the disabled person’s fate was sealed.
Most were murdered within 1-2 hours.
An international project to remember these victims started by Jeanne Hewell-Chambers set out to create 70,273 fabric blocks each with a red cross – one for each victim.
Our quilt remembers 104 victims.
The quilt will be displayed, alongside others from this area, in Rochester Cathedral in January.
It is hoped that all the quilts will be displayed in one of the concentration camps before being shipped to America where quilts from all over the world will be displayed together.
