After April 5, 1944, Hungarian Jews were required to wear a yellow star.

Klara Wolf (b. 1909) was forced to leave her job as a German and English teacher because of Hungarian anti-Jewish laws. She spent the wars years in the ghetto and was liberated by the Soviets on January 18, 1945. On the day of Wolf?s liberation, the star was torn off her chest and put into her hand by a young Soviet soldier, marking her return to freedom.
