The UDHR (Universal Declaration of Human Rights) proclaims basic human rights which are currently being ignored, violated, and circumvented by European countries dealing with refugees trying to cross the Mediterranean. I have met and become good friends with several people who came to Europe that way. They don`t talk much about the actual boat trip. But seeing pictures of a full boat on the water, when the waves are too high, tells the story they can`t talk about.
I dedicate this quilt to the many people who have drowned on that deadliest route to Europe and were deprived of finding a better life.
