The dark parallels between early Nazi Germany and the situation occurring along the US\Mexico border are becoming impossible to ignore. Our amnesia and our silence are complicity with these unfolding atrocities.
Holocaust historian Andrea Pitzer author of "One Long Night" on whether it is fair to call the camps where migrants and refugees are being detained Concentration Camps:
In an article published in the Times of Israel, she further elaborates:
“We have indications dating back to August that the separation policy was being looked at as a punitive measure — in the hopes that it would deter entry,” she wrote in an email.
“So we have punitive detention being used against asylum seekers, adults and children alike,” Pitzer said. “It’s a policy that wasn’t in place before under other administrations, and there’s no law requiring it. It wasn’t adopted as an emergency measure to deal with a new problem or a massive influx. People are being deported without their children, which is as punitive a measure as one can imagine. What can you take from people who have nothing? Their children.”
Here is also the original opinion piece that Andrea Pitzer wrote that further elaborates why she believes that these camps are early incarnations of Auschwitz published by HAARETZ of Israel.
