A photograph of a Bulgarian family with a button yellow badge


A photograph of a Jewish family from Bulgaria with a yellow badge buttoned on their shirts. Bulgaria, early 1940s.


Despite widespread opposition in Bulgaria to anti-Jewish legislation, on August 26, 1942, the Bulgarian government issued an order instructing Jews to wear an identification mark. Unlike cloth patches, Bulgarian Jews were marked with a small plastic button in the shape of a yellow Star of David. However, due to local opposition and church opposition, the order was not fully enforced and only about one-fifth of Bulgarian Jews wore the badge. 

Size: 8.5x6 cm. Very good condition.
