Soviet Union Kids Forest

Star of David Soviet Union

Haifa designer Hayim Shtayer shot this photo of a blue Star of David with a red Soviet Union star on a “Let My People Go” sticker. The sticker is part of his collection. It was used during the successful campaign to let Soviet Jewry immigrate to Israel after Six Days War.

The graphic design is fascinating: the transition from suppression to freedom is expressed by adding one point to the five-pointed Soviet Union star and by changing its color from red into blue. The transition is represented by the red arrow that prolongs the Hebrew letter Lamed.
