The official Twitter account of the Auschwitz Memorial weighed in on a thread that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez began Tuesday, in which users argued about the definition of "concentration camp."

They also asked some members of the media to "consider following" them to learn more about the horrors of Auschwitz.
The tweets came after some media members defended the New York congresswoman after she compared concentration camps to U.S. migrant detention centers Monday. "The United States is running concentration camps on our southern border, and that is exactly what they are. They are concentration camps," Ocasio-Cortez said.

Addressing a back-and-forth that took place under the Ocasio-Cortez tweet, the Memorial said, "The history of Auschwitz is far more complicated than this as it combined two functions: a concentration camp and from March 1942 an extermination center.

Is AOC out of line calling the detention centers concentration camps? Do you think Auschwitz is trying to own the term? Would the Japanese camps from the 40's be concentration camps as well? If there a difference in that and the incarceration of illegals to the US?

Yes. But do you think she has some point or is it all just exaggeration.

There are certainly similarities between the detention camps and concentration camps but I wouldn't equate them together.

I heard a funny joke. USA is the only place in history where people are climbing fences to get into their concentration camps.
