Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) is “insulting every victim of the Holocaust,” according to Holocaust survivors who spoke on camera in a Turning Point USA video released Saturday.
Two Holocaust survivors – David Tuck and Sami Steigmann – spoke on camera about their experiences in concentration camps.
“You have no concentration camps here,” Tuck, who endured four different concentration camps – Posen Stadium, Auschwitz, Mauthausen, and Gusen – said. He wondered why Ocasio-Cortez would dare make such a comparison.
“She’s looking out for herself. There must be a purpose, a reason. Why would she say it? She wants to be popular,” he said.
“For every ten Jews, nine were killed,” he continued. “I was lucky.”
The other survivor, Steigmann, survived labor camps and was “subjected to medical experiments.” He had a pointed message for Ocasio-Cortez.
“I went through it. How can you – looking at my face – tell me that the camps that they have in the south are concentration camps?” he asked.
“You are insulting every victim of the Holocaust,” he said. “Shame on you.”
Both survivors talked about the glory of taking refuge in the United States.
“I’ll finish with those words America,” Tuck said. “Send the kids to school. Make sure they have education. It’s still the best country in the world. Enjoy life. We have no concentration camps here.”
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.

Ocasio-Cortez sparked the political firestorm during an Instagram live video posted Monday evening.
“That is exactly what they are. They are concentration camps,” she said. “The fact that concentrations camps are now an institutionalized practice in the Home of the Free is extraordinarily disturbing and we need to do something about it.”
Ocasio-Cortez has since said she will “never apologize” for making the comparison.
On Thursday, Polish politician Dominik Tarczyński invited the New York lawmaker to travel to Poland in order to “study the concentration camps here for real.”
