Oct. 8th…. Project 70,273

This morning when reading some blogs , craftycreek has a global block day challenge post . This post calls out to me loud and clear for I have a special needs child,so for my lovely special daughter , I’m going to join this challenge.

What is this challenge about….. here is a clipping from the projects site.

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

If anyone cares to join the block making,it isn’t only for sewers ,if you have a red marker and white fabric and can write ,you too can join in. For more information go to:

    I read about this project on craftycreek’s blog–your personal experience, and the lovely photos of Leona, make the whole thing so real and give it a sense of urgency. I’m going to go look for info about getting involved.
