Today, January 27, is Holocaust Remembrance Day
– a day chosen because it marks the anniversary
of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising.
At Durham Cathedral,
it is being observed with a display of quilts
of The 70273 Project.
You saw some of them yesterday.
Thank you, Margaret Jackson, for the photos.
A Holocaust Remembrance Day service was held,
and throughout the day,
students and adults stopped
to commemorate others
by making blocks.
This Durham police officer and Constable
vow to organize an effort to encourage
Young Cadets to make blocks and quilts.
“Our hope for being a compassionate, caring world
lies with the children.”
~ Tari Vickery
Thank you, Tari Vickery, for these words and these photos.
And thank you Coxhoe Quilters for continuing
to commemorate the 70,273 people we honor
and for all the work you do with children.
Margaret Jackson created The 70273 Project Teacher’s Information Booklet.
