Kid Surrounded by a Heart and Stars

Star of David art Gideon From a stamps-collector's-Forum called Collect brought me Ephrayim Moshe Lilien's book Lieder Des Ghetto. The book is from 1902 and it looks old, as you can see in the photo. I'm very proud of this photo because it seems that I caught the right morning light. We see a kid surrounded by a heart and stars; some of them are in the shape of a Star of David.
Lieder des ghetto in German translates into Songs of the Ghetto. The book was accompanied by poems by East European Jew named Morris Rosenfeld, who had socialist ideals similar to those of Lilien.
