Fabric badge in shape of diamond. Center is yellow with purple borders. At center is capital letter P in purple. Narrative: Badge belonged to the donor, Aba Beer. While in Germany hiding his Jewish identity and passing as a Polish labourer, he was obliged to wear it to identify himself as non-Aryan. Aba was born in 1922 in Bielsko, Poland. In 1939, he moved east with his parents and sister, settling in Przemy?l. In the summer of 1942, he was included on a transport of 1000 Jews to work as slave labourers in the Janowska concentration camp, near Lviv. He escaped and pretending to be Polish, volunteered to go to Germany as a labourer. He worked in a restaurant in East Prussia until January 1944, when he was arrested for not wearing his badge. He was imprisoned in a castle in Ragnit, and then interned in a prisoner-of-war camp for Russian soldiers. He escaped the camp, joined the Polish partisans as a member of the Home Army (Armia Krajowa), and was liberated in Hela, May 1945.

Badge has straight sides, a rounded bottom and curves to a point at the top. Black base with 3 beige-gold chevron stripes at the top and a beige-gold 'T' at the bottom. Narrative: The badge is for the US Military rank T/4: Technician Fourth Grade. The ranks of Technician Third, Fourth and Fifth Grade were created on January 8, 1942 under the War Department Circular No. 5. These replaced existing specialist ranks, with the ‘T’ for ‘Technician’ added to the standard chevron design to correspond to that specific grade. The Technician ranks were removed from the rank system in 1948 but brought back with the Specialist ranks in 1955.
