The Auschwitz‑Birkenau Memorial and State Museum on Tuesday condemned Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene after she likened a grocery store's policy of identifying vaccinated employees to Jews being forced to wear yellow stars in Nazi Germany.
Greene, who represents a district in northwestern Georgia, responded to a local Tennessee grocery store that said employees who were vaccinated for
"Vaccinated employees get a vaccination logo just like the Nazi's forced Jewish people to wear a gold star," Greene wrote in a tweet. "Vaccine passports & mask mandates create discrimination against unvaxxed people who trust their immune systems to a virus that is 99% survivable."

Responses to the Georgia congresswoman included a message from the Auschwitz-Birkenau museum, located at sites in Poland where the Nazis killed more than 1 million people - most of them Jewish - during the Holocaust.
"The instrumentalization of the tragedy of Jews who suffered, were humiliated, marked with a yellow star, isolated in ghettos & murdered during the Holocaust, in a debate on different systems that aim at protecting public health is a sad symptom of moral and intellectual decline," the museum tweeted.
Greene's remarks represented a doubling down after she was similarly criticized recently for drawing a comparison between public-health precautions and Nazi discrimination of Jews.
Earlier this month, Greene lashed out at House Speaker
"You know, we can look back in a time in history where people were told to wear a gold star and they were definitely treated like second-class citizens, so much so that they were put in trains and taken to gas chambers in Nazi Germany," Greene said. "And this is exactly the type of abuse that Nancy Pelosi is talking about."
