Ed Mosberg is one the few remaining survivors of concentration camps and he has a bone to pick with the socialist pile of garbage Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her comparing the southern border’s migrant detention centers to “concentration camps.”
The 93-year-old from Morris Plains, NJ. said, “She should be removed from Congress. She’s spreading anti-Semitism, hatred and stupidity,” Mosberg told The Post. “The people on the border aren’t forced to be there — they go there on their own will. If someone doesn’t know the difference, either they’re playing stupid or they just don’t care.”
This administration has established concentration camps on the southern border of the United States for immigrants, where they are being brutalized with dehumanizing conditions and dying.

From New York Post:
On June 18, the Bronx/Queens politician posted a video on Instagram in which she said: “The United States is running concentration camps on our southern border, and that is exactly what they are — they are concentration camps.”
Mosberg, who lost his entire family during the Holocaust and himself survived both the Plaszów and Mauthausen camps, said: “Her statement is evil. It hurts a lot of people. At the concentration camp, we were not free. We were forced there by the Germans who executed and murdered people — there’s no way you can compare.”
On June 21, the Holocaust-education group From the Depths, of which Mosberg is the president, extended an invitation to AOC via Facebook, encouraging her to tour “German Nazi concentration camps” with Mosberg. He said he hoped to take her to the museum and memorial site at Auschwitz, where his mother was murdered. “They give my wife’s mother [benzine] injections to the heart and put her on the fire,” he said.

From The Daily Caller:
When Iowa Rep. Steve King encouraged her on Twitter to accept Mosberg’s invitation, Ocasio-Cortez tweeted in response to King, “The last time you went on this trip it was reported that you also met [with] fringe Austrian neo-Nazi groups to talk shop. So I’m going to have to decline your invite. But thank you for revealing to all how transparently the far-right manipulates these moments for political gain.”

Mosberg said he was disappointed by the rejection, adding that Ocasio-Cortez could have learned from the experience.
“If you’re not there, you will never know what happened,” he said. “She doesn’t want to learn — she’s looking for excuses. I would like to nominate her for the Nobel Prize in stupidity.”
Mosberg said he saw people being hanged, attacked by dogs and fatally beaten at the concentration camps he was forced to live in during World War II. Guards tried to kill him. He eventually immigrated to the United States with his wife and settled in Harlem.
A representative for Ocasio-Cortez told the Post the congresswoman has “made a distinction between a death camp and concentration camp. She’s been pretty outspoken about the issue.”
Ocasio-Cortez told CNN host Jake Tapper on Thursday that the Jewish community in her district has “rallied around this issue” of living conditions at the centers.

Mosberg, the father of three and grandfather of six has been back to the camps dozens of times and helped lead educational tours, including last year with Republican and Democratic members of Congress at Auschwitz.
From the Depths has taken 20 members of Congress, including New York’s Carolyn Maloney, on its educational tours.
“They were very shaken and upset learning about the torture, torment and murder,” he said. “They think every congressman should go to see it. She [AOC] doesn’t want to go. Unless you go into that dark place you can’t understand it.
“Eventually you will see she will lose all the Jewish vote in New York.”
