Holocaust survivors return to yellow star houses to remember
Seventy years ago a law was passed requiring the Jewish citizens of Budapest to leave their homes and move to assigned yellow-star houses, where they were crammed together. Authorities marked exactly 1944 houses with “canary yellow” stars to show that Jews were living there. 1600 of these houses still stand, and although many survivors have never returned because they are still haunted by memories, some continue to live in them to this day. For my photo series I took people back to the yellow-star house that had once been assigned to their families, while hearing their stories about the house.
