Posters were put up on numerous exits of buildings and stores reminding Jews to wear their Star. This shows how thorough the Nazis were and used propaganda to its full extent. One thing that comes to people’s heads after hearing about the posters is why did the Nazis go to such lengths when they wanted the Jews exterminated?  It may have cost quite a sum of money but it succeeded in providing the Jews with a false sense of security. Eventually, in the year 1938, Jews were required to carry identification papers that stated their numerical number they would be referred to as. By now it is obvious that the Jews were inferior in every aspect as their rights continued to diminish. The public may have noticed this but nothing was being done to retaliate. After all, majority felt it would be much easier to stay quiet and not get involved with something that didn’t concern them.
