The Star of David became known for his story during 1933-1945 during the Holocaust. David was Jew who had to live through pain and sadness like all the Jews. David explained what the Star that Jews had to wear at this time defined, meant, and represented them. The Star represented all the discrimination that he and his community had to go through. "This item, which signified humiliation during a difficult period in her life, was nevertheless something that she found worthy of saving and later donating to Yad Vashem, for others to learn about a piece of her story and the Jews of Bulgaria" (Mashbaum). The Star of David is now the new Jewish symbol.
