After the New York Democrat earned some opprobrium for referring to U.S. detention facilities as concentration camps, one Holocaust commemoration group says it wants to educate U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez instead.

In a statement on Friday, From the Depths founder Jonny Daniels invited her to travel with the group’s president, 93-year-old Holocaust survivor Edward Mosberg, to tour Nazi concentration camps.

Multiple lawmakers have taken similar tours in the past and the group wants Ocasio-Cortez to embark during the upcoming summer recess in Congress.

“The opportunity you will have of visiting the German Nazi Concentration Camps along with Mr. Mosberg, a 93 year old survivor of history’s most brutal genocidal regime, will enable you to become a witness of a witness, something that our generation will sadly be the last to do, as result of the fact that the survivors are passing away at an ever increasing rate,” the invitation reads.
