This is the title of an exhibition by Mrs Channah Zwaaf. Her mother was a Dutch Jewess who made a mixed marriage. The title of the exhibition refers to the fact that little Channah discovered that her mother was a Jew when the German occupier obbliged her mother to wear the star. Her marriage saved her mother but the rest of her family never came back.

Mrs Zwaaf is an accomplished pianist. She started painting later in life.

These aquarels depict twelve Jewish feasts.
