YELLOW BADGES AND YELLOW STAR HOUSES
Yellow badges (or yellow patches), also referred to as Jewish badges, are badges that Jews were ordered to wear in public during certain periods of Europe and especially Holocaust.
In 1944, Budapest Municipality designated 1,950 compulsory places of residence for around 220,000 Budapest Jews as “yellow-star houses”. Both the houses and their residents were obliged to display the yellow star by Budapest mayoral decree.
Although houses reserved for Jews were occasionally marked in Germany, and Nazi-occupied France and the Netherlands, the Hungarian legal prescription of marking all Budapest houses in which Jews were obliged to reside with a yellow star was unique in the history of the Holocaust.
