While promoting his own unique brand of politics, Higgins spends most of his time describing the horrors of the concentration camp in a respectful, reflective manner.

However, the Auschwitz Memorial chastised Higgins for narrating a selfie video from inside a gas chamber, where all visitors are asked at the entrance to maintain silence out of respect for the thousands of innocents who suffered and died there.

Along with a photo of a plaque urging visitors to remain silent, the Auschwitz Memorial tweeted, “Everyone has the right to personal reflections. However, inside a former gas chamber, there should be mournful silence. It’s not a stage.”

Higgins has retracted the video and released the following statement:

“I filmed the Auschwitz message with great humility. My intent was to offer a reverent homage to those who were murdered in Auschwitz and to remind the world that evil exists, that free nations must remember, and stand strong.

 

However, my message has caused pain to some whom I love and respect. For that, my own heart feels sorrow. Out of respect to any who may feel that my video posting was wrong or caused pain, I have retracted my video.

 

The atrocities that happened at Auschwitz were truly despicable, and we must never let history repeat itself in such a way. I have always stood with Israel and all Jewish people, and I always will. We live in a dangerous world, and massive forces of evil do indeed yet exist. We must all stand united against those evils. My Auschwitz video has been removed, and my sincere apology for any unintended pain is extended.”
