At your gates Jerusalem

Yellow Holocaust Star Exhibit

Usually the yellow badge is presented in the foreground and demands the whole attention of the viewer, but here the image of the yellow badge on the poster hides behind the boy and the foreground is dedicated to the multi-cultures of Jerusalem.

IMHO the message is that life goes on.
