Star of David badge worn by Mirjam Lewie in Amsterdam. Nazi Germany occupied the Netherlands in May 1940. In spring 1942, all Dutch Jewish men, women, and children over the age of six were required to wear a Judenstern attached to their outer clothing at all times. The badges were imposed to make it easy to separate Jews from the rest of the population, and also to humiliate them.
