Holocaust Survivors Have A Powerful Message For Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez
Two Holocaust survivors have a powerful message for Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in a new video from Turning Point USA.
The video features two Holocaust survivors, David Tuck and Sami Steigmann, addressing the freshman Democrat directly over her repeatedly comparing detention facilities on the Mexican border to concentration camps.
Steigmann was experimented on in concentration camps and Tuck still has the numbers on his arm from when he was imprisoned at Auschwitz.
“AOC, look at me,” Steigmann says in the opening of the video.
.@AOC claims America runs Concentration camps.
We spoke to the experts.
David and Sami survived the Holocaust.
They were beaten and starved.
They watched their loved ones die.
Sami was experimented on.

Tuck explains that he is a Holocaust survivor who was in four concentration camps, “we have no concentration camps here,” he states. “This is just a political comment.”
“I went through it,” Steigmann adds. “How can you, looking at my face, tell me that the camps we have in the south are concentration camps? What you are doing, you are insulting every victim of the Holocaust. Shame on you.”
Hey @AOC – guess who knows more about concentration camps than you? These Holocaust survivors. They have a message for you. Why don’t you listen – for once.
Great video by @TPUSA

Tuck blasted AOC for attempting to gain popularity points by invoking the horrors endured and told her, “don’t talk to me about concentration camps.”
AOC has said that she will not apologize for her remarks and has repeatedly doubled down on using Holocaust terms to describe the detaining of illegal immigrants.
