ALL JEWS ORDERED TO WEAR THE “JEW’S STAR”
On May 2nd 1942 the Germans ordered all Jews to wear the ‘Jodenster’. This was a small piece of yellow cloth printed with the six pointed star of David and the word ‘Jood’, Jew. This Jodenster had to be worn whenever a Jew was in public, outside his home. As all textiles were rationed the Jews had to pay 4 cents (about €2 today) for a bit of cotton smaller than a piece of toilet paper and surrender one textile coupon.
