abstract

Social scientists often quote the idea of Max Weber that a symbol is not possible without social dialogue. Symbols may certainly fulfill the function of integration of certain groups and of strengthening their sense of belonging. But at the same time symbols may serve for the demonstration of power: So, they may deepen social and emotional insecurity of those against whom they are directed. In this article we deal with the painful experience of unfair discrimination that is linked to the “yellow star” – a yellow six-pointed star with the word “Jude” (German word for Jew) across the front in black which had to be used by Protectorate Jews after 1941. Already in 1939 the star as a symbol of discrimination had prescribed for Polish Jews.
