The concentration’s camp is a very right compression of the USA are doing now with the refugees. The Polish commentator, Law & Justice deputy Dominik Tarczyński, seeing that the right ones are the Nazis’ camps installed in Poland during the 2WW misunderstands the problem.
The concentration’s camps were a USA’s practice long before the Nazis’s. The firsts camps that we have noticed about were those established by American general Valeriano Wesley in Cuba. In that camps died ca. 1/3 Cuban population at that time.
The concentration of populations in specific places, routes, and other war innovations was initially used during the Civil War by Generals Sheridan and Hunter, when they completely devastated the Shenandoah Valley and by General Sherman also by leveling Georgia and South Carolina. This strategy was faithfully copied by General Weyler in Cuba. These concentration camps are then of North American origin. This strategy was later used in other conflicts, such as those carried out by Horatio Kitchener in the Boer Wars, and by the Wehrmacht during the Second World War. So, the practice of concentrating civilians in guarded camps or centers, specifically as part of a counter-guerrilla military strategy during wartime, long predated and outlasted the Second World War.
It was a social phenomenon in the late 1890s and the first decade of the twentieth century. They accomplished the function of the camps in three different colonial arenas between 1868 and 1902. And we have to emphasize the different purposes between these exercises in civilian concentration and the ‘camp culture’ of the Nazi era in Europe. Nazis transform the concentration’s camps into extermination’s camps following a preconceived plan for annihilation the so call by him the inferiority race.
Then Ocasio-Cortez is right when becoming the comparison with the practice of Trumps’ Government regard to the refugees. They have prisoned in authentic concentration’s camps in the USA. They are suffering from severe isolation, diseases, malnutrition, psychological stress, abuses and are dying.
The Polish Politic that wants to teach the Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez about is not only wrong but reflects the lack of humility in front of his great ignorance and the complex of the martyrology created by the far right Polish political wing spheres, who are redefining the history of Poland and the 2WW.
