Cathedral Display: The 70,273

Displayed in the Cathedral till 12th March are crosses representing 13,817 lives of the 70,273 men women and children killed by the Third Reich between 1940 and 1941 because they were physically or mentally ill.  All it needed was for two doctors to mark red crosses on a person’s file; these killings preceded the holocaust.  The project was started to remember all those people killed and the crosses displayed in the Cathedral have been stitched by groups and individuals in the south east; some of the stitching was by pupils from Victory Academy.

Please visit the Cathedral and see the displays and learn more about this Project.
