Yellow Stars of Tolerance documents a project to preserve yellow stars that were painted during the Holocaust in World War II on a synagogue exterior wall in Normandy, France to terrorize the local Jewish community. The intent of the recent preservation project is to serve as a testament to that terrible chapter of history and as a reminder of the dangers of intolerance. While today the Jewish community is virtually gone from Elbeuf, the stars remain to tell their story. And sadly, the recent, tragic increase in anti-Semitism in France finds an outlet at this wall, giving the story current significance.
