Star of David patch with Juif worn by Jewish woman

Object | Accession Number: 2008.65.2

Judenstern marked Juif brought by Malka Weinapple from Europe to the United States, possibly worn by her when she was living in German occupied France. Nazi Germany invaded France in May 1940. An armistice was signed in June and Paris became the seat of the German military administration. In June 1942, a decree was issued making it mandatory for all Jewish persons over the age of six Jews to wear these identification badges at all times.
