I wear a Yellow star so that people know who I am.

Why? Didn’t they know me before?

The kids in my neighborhood don’t have to wear a Yellow star.

Am I different?

And if so, how am I different?

I breathe the same air, I read the same books, I play with the same toys.

I even look the same.

My mother says it’s because I am Jewish and we are no longer considered human.

I am wearing a Yellow star

The star of David

David, who my friends also know because they have heard of him in  their Sunday school.

They love his story because he was a great King and warlord

Why then ,do they look to this Yellow star pf David as if it is a badge of shame.

I am Hanna Lehrer I was born in Munich,Germany but was killed in Riga,Latvia.
