This represents symbolism because the Jews had to wear the Star of David. Yellow stars is another word for a symbol that the Nazi’s made the Jews wear on all of their clothes. The Star of David symbolizes faith and hatred from the Nazi’s. It is very hard for Anne to burn her yellow star. Goodrich writes,”You can’t throw…? Something they branded you with …?
