Eva Fleischner’s Suggestion

From: Auschwitz, Beginning of a New Era: Reflections on the Holocaust, Published 1977, ISBN 087068499X

I would like some gifted Christian artist to paint a crucifixion scene portraying
Jesus as an Auschwitz Jew, including the yellow badge Jude on his body

Arthur Szyk: Medallions of Honor

From: Historicana dot com
Szyk, Arthur. Huddled Jews
This image of the huddled Jews was produced for the exhibition "Arthur Szyk Illuminator" presented by the Wilshire Blvd. Temple in Los Angeles. The composite elements in the poster represent the fear and sorrow of displaced Jews wearing the yellow badge of shame overlaid with Szyk's badges and medallions of honor

Miami Beach Holocaust Memorial in Miami Beach, Florida

The Memorial, constructed on government owned land, was not permitted to have overt religious symbols. The designers included into the structure several items of Judaica. For example the spacing of the stones reveals the shape of a menorah. The entranceway to the focal point of the memorial is an ante way capped by a dome - similar to those found in Jerusalem. At the top of the dome is a yellow stained glass in the shape of a Magen David with the word Jude written across it. The Mid day Miami sun shining through this window is the effect, which you see in my picture. The hallway is approximately 50 meters in length and is lined with the names of the death camps.
