Object | Accession Number: 2009.105.1

Circular cloth Star of David patch that 21 year old Angela Weissmann was forced to wear in Piatra Neamt, Romania, ca. 1941-1945. In November 1940, the fascist government of General Antonescu joined the Axis Alliance. They immediately put in place policies to persecute Jews, such as the requirement that Jews wear a Jewish star badge on their clothing at all times. The antisemitic regime also supported increasingly violent attacks and pogroms against the Jewish population.
