The DC Holocaust Museum Has Now Weighed in on Ocasio-Cortez's Comments

We were all waiting for this one. While it was encouraging to see both Republican and Democratic lawmakers resoundingly reject Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's (D-NY) comparison between immigration detention centers and Holocaust concentration camps, now that the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum has weighed in, we may finally be able to put an end to this mess.

Read the full statement below. The museum makes it as clear as it can that under no circumstances should the Holocaust be used as an analogy.

WASHINGTON, DC – The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum unequivocally rejects efforts to create analogies between the Holocaust and other events, whether historical or contemporary. That position has repeatedly and unambiguously been made clear in the Museum’s official statement on the matter – a statement that is reiterated and reaffirmed now. The link to the Museum’s statement is here.

The Museum further reiterates that a statement ascribed to a Museum staff historian regarding recent attempts to analogize the situation on the United States southern border to concentration camps in Europe during the 1930s and 1940s does not reflect the position of the Museum.

The Museum deeply regrets any offense to Holocaust survivors and others that may have been engendered by any statement ascribed to a Museum historian in a personal capacity.

In case you're wondering, no. Ocasio-Cortez has not apologized or retracted her statement. She did the opposite. She doubled down and is still using the term "concentration camp."
