Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic is flying a yellow flag to mark Holocaust Remembrance Day at his official residence in the capital of Belgrade.The flag, which bears a Star of David and the word “Jude” is meant to evoke the yellow star badge that Jews were forced to wear during the Holocaust. It is flying alongside the Serbian national flag at the Novi Dvor building.Vucic tweeted a photo of the flag this week with the words, “This sign was a symbol of an attempt to destroy the Jewish people by the Nazis. Today it is a badge of honor”. Vucic is attending the Fifth World Holocaust Forum in Jerusalem this week. International Holocaust Remembrance Day falls on 27 Jan. 2020. (JTA)
