Caption: Deportation of Children
I am not sure if this has been posted before, I tried the search feature but didn't find anything... Did the Nazis put "yellow stars" on the BACKS of jews' clothes? Am I the only one who noticed how those children are not facing the camera, yet the jewish stars are noticeable?
I zoomed it in to point out what I think are the "stars":
Another question that's not so relevant to this thread, but I thought I might ask here anyway:
Is this INSIDE or OUTSIDE the camp?
I never realy took thought of this till you bought it up,but I'm pretty sure I remember seeing either moving pictures or photos of adults with stars on their backs.I'm not trying to put a damper on your theory here,cause I may well be wrong,but I'll check it out and get back.TruthSeeker wrote:What about the ones I pointed out? I haven't heard of any jewish stars being put on their backs. Could it be that they just wanted people to be "sure" that it was a "true" picture? besides, I think most of the stars were on the left side, correct? The girl at the front of the line has it on the right side.

Point taken. Hmm.. But moving pictures could be edited these days, can't they?
But if you have any other photos that show the star worn on the back or the right side, I'd like to see them.
And if they did indeed place the stars on their backs, what's the significance of that? To tell the truth, this is the first picture I've seen with stars on their backs. Does anyone know what the significance of it might've been, if it really is true? I'm interested, because so far, I am doubtful that this picture is genuine..
To make sure that Jews could be easily noticed, some local authorities added additional stars to be worn on the back and even on one knee.
Of course, this could be just a fabricated version of
In France, local variations of the badge continued until Louis IX decreed in 1269 that "both men and women were to wear badges on the outer garment, both front and back, round pieces of yellow felt or linen, a palm long and four fingers wide."

Simon "we fake photos" Wiesenthal Centre says:
BADGE, JEWISH: A label Jews were forced to wear in Nazi Germany to identify, shame and separate them from other people. Most countries controlled by Germany gradually forced their Jews to wear a "Jewish badge". Usually a yellow or white six-pointed Jewish star, the badge had to be worn on the chest, back or arm.
Yet nowhere does it show a picture of a jewish star worn on the back, not even on that Wiesenthal page..
Also, does anyone know if there were "dark coloured" badges? The only ones I've seen are yellow (or bright coloured), yet:
Am I WAY OUT of line here and haven't seen many pics? In most/all(?) of the pics, the stars are not visible on bright coloured clothing...
And what about this:
and what about the star on this lady's back, the shades of the star aren't very convincing (unless I'm just paranoid, in which case, excuse my paranoia):
