Recently, the TRC received a number of quilts made by the Mennonite community in North America and in Europe (in the Netherlands known as the Doopsgezinden). Two of the quilts date to the Second World War or just before. They are Relief Quilts, made in America by Mennonite women to help those in need in Europe (just after WW2). A third Relief Quilt was recently made in Europe for those in need in Syria and Jordan.

We have published two blogs on the subject, one written by the TRC to express our thanks (click here), the other written by Lynn Kaplanian-Buller of the Mennonite community, explaining the background (click here).
