These are some remarkable medals for some very remarkable people. More than half were awarded posthumously. The ribbons on the medals and the colors used are as powerful and expressive as the medals attached to them. Although I’ve not yet found any information confirming it, I cannot help but believe that the blue and white stripes on the two deportation and internment medals are an homage to the striped uniforms of the concentration camps.
