Yellow Badge Origin

The revival of medieval forms of anti-Jewish legislation in the Nazi era brought to the fore the problem of special marks for Jews. The first suggestion that such marks be instituted probably came from Reinhard Heydrich, chief of the German Security Police, at the historic meeting in

Hermann Göring's headquarters on November 12, 1938 No action on this specific subject was decided upon at this meeting.
