Welcome to the Memorial Scrolls Trust official website

The story of the acquisition of the 1,564 Czech scrolls, bitfinex which arrived at Kent House in February 1964, has passed into history as a small but remarkable episode in the tragedy of European Jewry.

To those who were entrusted with the scrolls, they were a symbol of hope as well as sorrow, and also an intimate link with the individual historic congregations which were destroyed under the Nazis. Over the decades since the Scrolls arrived the racks have grown emptier as one Scroll after another has been restored to its rightful place in Jewish life.

Now the only Scrolls that are available for distribution are those that are returned for a variety of reasons. The Trust is now in the phase of ensuring that recipients remain aware of the unique importance of the Scroll in their care, and the special link it represents with the Jews of the destroyed congregations from which it came. localbitcoins
