Mandatory identification label for Jewish doctors

Object | Accession Number: 2015.518.2

Label with a blue star of David on a yellow circle of the type that had to be used by Jewish doctors during the Nazi regime in Germany. They also state that the doctor can only treat Jewish patients. After Hitler was appointed Chancellor of Germany in 1933, anti-Jewish legislation severely restricted Jewish participation in the medical profession. Jewish doctors were required to apply identifying labels to their offices, mail boxes, and correspondence.
