Crooked noses and yellow stars at the Aalst carnival (Belgium)

Pictures taken at this years' famous Aalst carnival parade. Middle-aged men are disguised as orthodox Jews with crooked noses and wearing a yellow star. The Palestinian keffiehs and the combat helicopters (photo on the right) only serve to demonize Israel and the Jews. Sadly, this appalling "humour" hasn't drawn any criticism, other than an article in the Jewish French-speaking Regards magazine.

The compulsory wearing of the yellow star was the climax of the indignities to which Jews were forced to submit
"The climax of the indignities to which Jews still living in Germany were forced to submit was the yellow star, the wearing of which became compulsory on 19 September 1941. Nowhere was the Jew to feel safe: she or he was to be marked out, part of the crowd but already exiled from it. For several days Klemperer was unable to sum up the courage to leave the Jews’ House and go out into the street with the yellow star displayed on his chest." (Martin Chalmers, introduction to I Shall Bear Witness: The Diaries of Victor Klemperer 1933-41, Weinfeld & Nicolson, 1998)
