She wrote:

The yellow star, a small piece of material that marked the Jews, took on a wide-ranging significance and sealed destinies. Thus I chose to draw an enlarged yellow star such that the canvas could not contain it. Had I the possibility, I would have drawn it the size of a stadium, but that too would not have been enough to encompass the immense horror that the yellow star symbolizes.
