If you follow American political news, you know that new Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, who gets a lot of attention because she is pretty, young, and Hispanic, has appropriated the term "concentration camp" to describe US housing of illegal immigrants.
Leftists are all atingle, excited that they can now use the term "concentration camp" to talk about the US.
Because they are largely anti-Semitic, and Holocaust deniers, and applying this term to US centers advances their cause in two ways: they are robbing Jews of their history, and they are bashing the US.
This is all more disgusting than I can address here. There has been much coverage in the American press. One excellent treatment is here. Of course logic and facts will not reach leftists.
The photo above is of Czeslawa Kwoka, a 14 year old Polish Catholic girl murdered in Auschwitz.
Her photographer was Wilhelm Brasse, a Polish man forced by the Nazis to photograph prisoners. He was ordered to destroy his photos but he saved many of them. As you can see from his name, he had some Germanic ancestry. The SS offered him the chance to identify as German. He declined. He was imprisoned.
Of the photo of Czeslawa, Brasse later said,
She was so young and so terrified. The girl didn't understand why she was there and she couldn't understand what was being said to her.
So this woman Kapo (a prisoner overseer) took a stick and beat her about the face. This German woman was just taking out her anger on the girl. Such a beautiful young girl, so innocent. She cried but she could do nothing.
Before the photograph was taken, the girl dried her tears and the blood from the cut on her lip. To tell you the truth, I felt as if I was being hit myself but I couldn't interfere. It would have been fatal for me. You could never say anything
