The yellow David star

Bild
This is the yellow David star that we were forced to wear after the enforcement of the Law for the Protection of the Nation in 1941. The star was made from bakelite, it was yellow with a black line on the edge. Our stars were small ones (3x3x3cm) compared to those worn by the Jews in Poland, for example. I remember the first time when I went to school with the yellow star. All my classmates were shocked as if they felt responsible for what happened to me. When we were interned, all my classmates came to see us off at the station. I have never felt any anti-Semitism.
