    Done some research on my own and it seems this one is a fake or a theater/film related item. I find it very hard to believe these would be faked but well we live in a strange, sick world...

    Yes, it does look to be a post war fake. And, yes...we do.

    I must agree with William.

    All Holocaust related items like these are highly faked....

    Cheers, Ade.

    As Ade has stated, this area is heavily replicated. Countless reproduction and fantasy examples of cloth Holocaust related material are available, many offered as genuine pieces. The Star of David examples are well addressed in Tulkoff's "Counterfeiting The Holocaust" work.

    According to the reference book, Counterfeiting the Holocaust, only one variant of the Dutch star "Jood" was ever produced. This example is incorrect in that it has the wrong font as well incorrect material, color and construction. Therefore, it's my opinion that this is a poor post-war reproduction that has been lightly aged with dirt and sunlight. When comparing to known originals, such as the one below, the example originally posted shares absolutely no characteristics besides that it's a Star of David and has to word, Jood, on it. Just by looking at the two it should be quite apparent something is wrong.
    The original below is credited to the USHMM, United States Holocaust memorial museum.
    For sack of conversation, I own a French variant, Juif, which came from their archives. Also, this isn't a "Jewish star", but rather a Star of David. Many other religious groups such as the Christians use this star. Classifying it solely as Jewish is incorrect and a common misconception.
    It should also be noted that all of these stars were a certain size which didn't change, at least this variant didn't, due to regulations. I'd have to verify, but I believe the designated size for the Jood variant was 3 1/2 by 3 1/2. Early on in German occupied Eastern Europe size regulations did change several times, however by the latter point of the war all variants used the size above.

    speaking of wierd fakes, there is an antique store near me that has a replica can of xyclon B, complete with nazi markings. I've thought about getting it for the
    displays I do at the schools, but it seems "in poor taste'. what do you guys think?

    This is taking the thread way off track - sorry, but we do not need that. I will delete any posts deemed unsuitable and close the thread immediately if the thread does not continue to address the item in question, i.e. the "Jood" star. I have replied to your question via personal message.
