Jewish WW2 GHETTO yellow DAVID star with letter J worn in Belgium
For your viewing is a rare WWII Jewish Ghetto star patch. Letter J means JEWS. There were several different types of stars, sometimes hand made. These stars must be wearing on all clothes by Jewish people in any GHETTOs in Belgium. The item has a lot of wear during that awful time. It has a huge historian value !
This particular item passed very important test – it does not glow under the black lamp (all fabrics after 1945 glow under the black light) – please look at the image (for compare I put on the last image armband which glow under a black lamp). Also the piece have an old smell that old authentic cloth keeps. More over the armband passed 2nd test – burned test (old fabric after burn become a proud, modern fabric become a resin). For sample I put a photo of family Jews with the same patches. Original pictures.
Recently the star from Ghetto sold on eBay for $499 – look at the image bellow.
