Badge with a yellow Star of David on a black circle worn by a Romanian Jewish woman

Object | Accession Number: 2007.235.1

Star of David badge that 20 year-old Simona Weissmann was forced to wear in Piatra Neamt, Romania from 1941-1945. In November 1940, the fascist government of Romania of General Antonescu joined the Axis Alliance. They immediately put in place polices to persecute Jews, such as the requirement that Jews wear a Star of David badge2 on their clothing at all times. The antisemitic regime also supported increasingly violent attacks and pogroms against the Jewish population.
