no title

Professor Oak is not going to be pleased about this.

If you consider yourself up-to-date on current trends, then you've probably noticed that most people Millennial-aged and younger have been completely consumed by Pokémon Go over the past week.

However, if you're confused by the '90s Nintendo game's resurgence in popularity, then you're not alone — the Holocaust Museum in Washington D.C. is currently looking to get the three PokéStops located on its premises removed from the app altogether!

The historical site has reported an upturn in visitors since the release of Pokémon Go last Wednesday, but many patrons feel as though the childlike nature of the game is distasteful when compared to the heavy subject material of the building.

Unfortunately for tech-savvy historians, according to museum Communications Director Andrew Hollinger, the VR/real world crossover "falls very much outside" their normal allowance for social media usage, saying:

ICYMI, the presumptive GOP nominee recently posted a picture on Twitter that featured Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton in front of a background of dollar bills, with text that read "most corrupt candidate ever" inside a six-pointed Star of David.

When The Donald's son-in-law, who is also the publisher of the Observer, was asked to comment on the controversy by one of its writers, the 35-year-old gave a PR-crafted response, explaining that the Apprentice alum has always been accepting of his religion, and doesn't harbor any hate.

In his personally-penned column about the controversial tweet, Jared also shared the story of his grandparents, who had survived the Holocaust.

He even included the horrific part about how his grandmother's sister was killed in

The loss of a true legend and iconic author.

Elie Wiesel, a Holocaust survivor who also became a Nobel Laureate, has died at the age of 87, according to media reports.

Wiesel is best known for his groundbreaking work Night, a book describes the horrors he experienced as a Jewish survivor of the Nazi death camps of the Holocaust during World War II.

After he was liberated from those camps at the end of the war as a young man, he went around the world for the rest of his life — most notable in the United States, France, and Israel — to speak on behalf of victims of hate and persecution.

According to Wiesel's son, the author apparently died at his home in Manhattan. No cause was given.

Wiesel's death is a major event in global politics; even Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke after his death (below), releasing a statement:

Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueSad Sad

no title

Maybe she's still a little confused about what actually happened during the Holocaust.

Jessa Duggar, from the show 19 Kids and Counting, visited the Holocaust Museum in Washington, D.C. and she was very moved by the experience.

She was so moved that she tried to find a way to tie it into our everyday life, and even though there are actual genocides taking place in the world right now, she chose to link it to abortion.

Yup, you read that right.

Fashion Retailer Under Scandal For Kids' Shirt Resembling Holocaust Prisoner Uniforms

zara holocaust shirt

Wow. Just…wow.

Remember that time Urban Outfitters was criticized for selling a shirt with a patch resembling the Star Of David, similar to the one Jewish people were forced to wear under Hitler's reign in Nazi Germany?

Well, apparently Zara doesn't remember that incident, because they recently tried to sell a shirt with a comparable patch.

Unfortunately, Zara's version was much, much worse because the six-pointed star was yellow and sewn onto blue and white striped fabric — which just happens to make the shirt look almost identical to the uniforms Jewish prisoners had to wear in WWII concentration camps.

Obviously customers were outraged, but Zara was quick to respond via Twitter:

Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueSad Sad

girl takes selfie at concentration camp offensive

Some people just don’t get it.

Even after studying the history of the Holocaust with her father, who sadly passed away, teen Breanna Mitchell somehow still doesn’t get it.

She posted a picture of herself smiling in front of the Nazi concentration camp, Auschwitz, which obviously started offending people. So, she took it down, but not before some news outlets had already picked up the story.
