Jewish WW2 survivor's anger at yellow anti-vax stars at French protest
A survivor of the largest deportation of Jews in France during World War Two has spoken out against people who wore yellow stars at a protest against the new rules for using the Covid-19 health pass in France.

Speaking at a ceremony to commemorate the national Memorial Day for victims of racist and antisemitic crimes, Joseph Szwarc held up an image of the yellow non-vacciné star some protestors wore.

He said: "I would like to state my indignation over what we have seen this week. I wore the star. I know what it means. I still feel it in my flesh."


Mr Szwarc said of seeing yellow stars being worn at recent protests in France: "You cannot imagine how emotional it made me, I started crying.

"I want to express my outrage over what we have seen this week."

Protestors were opposing new rules to extend the use of the French health pass this summer.
