Manchester Jewish Museum will be proud to display the International Peace Quilt from 21st January to 22nd February 2013.
As a response to London 2012 children aged between 8 and 15 from countries all over the world were invited to draw what Peace means to them. The resulting drawings were sent from 197 countries. They were then transferred to pieces of material and stitched together to form a quilt.
From Denmark to Iran, 197 countries contributed. The result is a moving representation of children’s desire for a peaceful world.
For more information on the Peace Quilt please see "Exhibitions".
