A liberal news site is thrown back on Monday for denouncing the Holocaust Museum's "terrible" involvement in the national debate over the comparison of US border installations with concentration camps.
Last week, MP Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-NY caused a firestorm when she claimed that the Trump administration was operating "concentration camps" along the southern border. When critics accused her of leading a Holocaust-related term, Ocasio-Cortez emphasized that she did not refer to "National Socialist" death camps, although she repeated "never-again" statements and the Trump presidency "fascist " is called. The US Holocaust Memorial Museum issued a statement "clearly rejecting" the analogy between detention centers for migrants and concentration camps.
Rafi Schwartz, Senior Writer of Splinter News, wrote a post about the intervention of the Holocaust Museum in the "terrible" debate.

"In its attempt to present itself as exceedingly neutral and beyond the political discourse of the day, the Holocaust Museum has instead managed to completely undercut its alleged reason for passing: the public beyond to enlighten the horrors of European Jewry and other marginalized communities in the hope of preventing similar atrocities in the future, "Schwartz wrote. "But if, as the museum claims," attempts to create analogies between the Holocaust and other events "should be unequivocally rejected, then why learn anything about the Holocaust at all?"
Schwartz continued the Holocaust Museum "deliberately tied up with pearls" and described his "stubbornness" as "particularly disturbing".
"Why learn anything at all about the Holocaust when the goal is simply to ossify its horrors as something no contemporary offers roadmap for action?" Asked Schwartz. "If the past is not a prologue, but only an antique to be analyzed remotely, what do we need museums for?"

Splinter, a site of Univision Communications, has shared the article on social media, in which it was given as a ratio, which means that he received more answers than likes and retweets. One critic accused the piece of "Holocaust Splaining".
