Auschwitz Memorial responded to MSNBC's host Chris Hayes, Tuesday after defending his split comments from the Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, DN.Y., recently compared US border facilities to concentration camps.
Hayes responded to a tweet by Rep. Liz Cheney, who smashed Ocasio-Cortez to evict the extermination of six million Jewish people during the Holocaust to make a point about the treatment of immigrants.

"If you spend a few minutes learning a concrete story, you will find that concentration camps are different from death camps and have a story that goes on and goes far beyond the Nazis," Hayes tweeted in an attempt to defend Ocasio-Cortez.
The verified twitter account of Auschwitz Memorial noted and suggested the far left MSNBC hosted training on the tragic events that took place in the concentration camp.

"Auschwitz has become a symbol of terror, genocide and the holocaust" memorial says on its website. "Initially, Auschwitz was to be a more concentration camp of the type established by the Nazis since the beginning of the 1930s. It functioned in this role through its existence, even when it began in 1942, it also became the largest of the death camps. "
The term" concentration camps "has been in the news because of an extreme comparison made by Ocasio-Cortez during an Instagram live stream on Monday.
" The fact that the concentration camps are now an institutionalized practice in the open country is extraordinary disruptive, "Ocasio-Cortez said.
Many on the left agreed on Ocasio-Cortez, and she doubled after seeing Republican rebellion and claimed that she was not involved in" hyperbolt ".
" And for the screaming republicans who do not know the difference: concentration camps are not the same as death camps. Concentration camps are considered experts as "the mass detention of civilians without trial." And that's exactly what this administration does, "she wrote on Twitter.

Auschwitz Memorial sent a similar tweet to CNN reporter Andrew Kaczynski, who stated that the camp was "a mix of labor and extermination camps."
"Auschwitz's history is far more complicated than this, as it combined two functions: a concentration camp and from March 1942 an extermination center. See our online lesson, "The Memorial replied .
Meanwhile, Hayes continued to discuss the situation in a number of tweets and admitted that he deserved criticism.
" I deserve enough relationship but regardless what hell do you call them, we should close them. There is absolutely no reason to detain the vast overwhelming majority of these people. It is undeniable, "he wrote.
