The History Place - World War II in Europe

A Jewish man wearing the yellow star walks along a street in Germany. The policy of requiring Jews to wear the stars was also extended to occupied areas, including Jewish ghettos. Below: Five year old Avram Rosenthal and two year old brother Emanuel of the Kovno ghetto in Lithuania are shown. Both boys were later deported to the death camp at Majdanek where they were murdered.
