Star of David badge templates acquired by Henriette Parker from Julia Pierre Nicaise who hid Henriette in Belgium during the Holocaust. The badges would be cut out along the outline for use. In May 1940, Nazi Germany occupied Belgium. In 1942, the German authorities required all Jews to wear Judenstern on their outer clothing at all times to separate them from the general population.
