MICHAEL BORNSTEIN (HOLOCAUST SURVIVOR): It's disgusting to hear someone comparing Dr. Mengele, who was, again, a doctor of death who killed children -- he experimented on twins, my father was killed in Auschwitz, my older brother -- to Dr. Fauci, who wants to save lives. And there is absolutely zero comparison.
JOHN BERMAN (ANCHOR): What do you think it is? Why do you think it is that people make these comparisons?
BORNSTEIN: I think people want notoriety. I think it's very wrong for another TV station to air that without comments that it's wrong. And it really hurts the Holocaust to compare that, and it hurts people because they don't want to get vaccinated. And it's terrible.
BERMAN: It is not the only time we have seen these references to the Holocaust, in comparison to vaccinations. Michael, do you think people just don't understand what you went through? Do you think people don't understand what the Holocaust is?
BORNSTEIN: I think people understand, but the problem is they listen to whatever TV stations or others tell them. And they want to listen. Some people just don't want to get vaccinated. And, you know, Dr. Walensky, Dr. Fauci are there to save lives. You know, Mengele wanted to kill people.
