Jews required to wear the Star of David in Nazi Germany...
Item # 639228
September 7, 1941
THE BOSTON HERALD, September 7, 1941
* The Yellow Star "Star of David" badge
* Jewish Holocaust takes a drastic turn (1st report)
* Jude - Jews - Judaica
Page 9 has a very significant Judaica item concerning their treatment by the Nazis under Hitler's rule, the one column headings read: "JEWISH BOYS TO WEAR STARS" "New Nazi Rule Covers all Over 6". The article is datelined at Berlin and begins with: "All Jews over 6 years of age were ordered by the secret police today to wear a large yellow 'Star of David' with a black superscription: 'Jew'" See image for the brief text here. Unfortunate for the somewhat discrete, inside page report here but a very notable issue and perhaps the first report of the requirement to wear the 'Star of David' on their clothing.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day throughout with much on World War II. Complete with all 7 sections, minor margin wear, nice condition.
