Pattern Details

The 70,273 Project is a non-profit organization founded by Jeanne Hewell-Chambers to commemorate the 70,273 physically and mentally disabled people - men, women, and children deemed "economic burdens on society" between 1940-1941 by the Nazi. When two of three doctors evaluated paper work and placed a red X on the page without ever seeing the persons, their fate was sealed. The 70,273 Project Block is a simple paper-pieced XX block representing one voiceless, and powerless person. It is free to all who desire to participate in the project to honor them. We cannot change the history of this senseless act, but we can honor our loved ones who live with similar challenges by honoring these 70,273. For more information on how to participate see the pattern, also , and Jeanne Hewell-Chambers article in the September 2018 issue of The Quilt Pattern Magazine.
