The American Holocaust Memorial Museum was blasted on Twitter after a statement was issued on Monday and rejects & # 39; efforts to create analogies between the Holocaust and other events & # 39 ;.

Their & # 39; unambiguous rejection & # 39; seemed to condemn the statements of the representative of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), claiming that the US & # 39; concentration camps on the southern border & # 39; has founded.

& # 39; The Holocaust Memorial Museum in the United States unambiguously rejects attempts to create analogies between the Holocaust and other events, historical or contemporary, & # 39; said the museum in one statement.

& # 39; That position has been repeatedly and unambiguously made clear in the museum's official statement on the issue – a statement that is now being repeated and confirmed. & # 39;

The museum's statement was immediately condemned by Twitter users who noted that the museum has devoted an entire section to comparing the Holocaust with genocides from around the world.

& # 39; You all have this in front or no & # 39 ;, one of the users asked and posted a photo from the museum telling visitors & # 39; to think about what you saw & # 39; when searching for genocide.

& # 39; If the Holocaust Museum feels unable to point out similarities between the Holocaust and other events, then there is a problem with the leadership of the Holocaust Museum & # 39 ;, Andy Pearlman claimed.

Writer Michael Schulman added: & # 39; On your own website there is a page about genocide issues around the world, including Bangladesh, Rwanda and Syria. If the Holocaust cannot be used for analogies, why are you bringing these other places up? & # 39;

Many users used the & # 39; Never Again & # 39; sentence that is often associated with the Holocaust and the prevention of future genocides.

& # 39; What does & # 39; never again for you? As a Jew, I thought it meant we had to be vigilant because this could happen again – and not just for Jews, "Mark Harris said." You apparently think it means, "Don't worry," this will never happen again. & # 39; Your statement is a disgrace. & # 39;

The sentiment was co-signed by Ben Norton, who added: & # 39; Disgraceful. The American Holocaust Memorial Museum explicitly says that the Nazi Holocaust cannot be compared to anything else in history.

& # 39; This makes the expression & # 39; never & useless, erasing and whitening other genocides. It is a form of revisionism in the holocaust. & # 39;

& # 39; As stewards of this history, your statement is horrifying and embarrassing & # 39 ;, another user said. & # 39; What a complete failure of judgment is this. Not sure what #NeverAgain means if it doesn't call atrocities before they become genocides and it's too late. & # 39;

Other users just taunted the museum as a & # 39; shame & # 39; and a & # 39; disappointment & # 39 ;.

& # 39; Just because other types of people are being put into it doesn't make it wrong to call them concentration camps & # 39 ;, Steven Santos said. & # 39; Now you are on the wrong side of 21st century history. & # 39;

Another user – Alexander Gail – admitted that she would stop her donations to the museum, instead to the Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services (RAICES).

The controversy began when Ocasio-Cortez, a rising star in the Democratic Party, started last Tuesday with her original accusation against Trump.

& # 39; This government has set up concentration camps on the southern border of the United States for immigrants, where they are mined with inhumane conditions and die. This is not an exaggeration. It is the conclusion of expert analysis, & # 39; wrote the first-year congressman from New York on Twitter on Tuesday, linked to an Esquire article on the subject.

Ocasio-Cortez tweeted on Wednesday: & # 39; The US previously led concentration camps when we were traveling with Japanese people during the Second World War. It is such a disgraceful history that we largely ignore it. These camps take place throughout history. Many refuse to learn from that shame, but here we are today. We have a duty to terminate them. & # 39;
