A presenter at academic media company PragerU has been criticized for stating that her spiritual beliefs means she thinks Jewish people chose to be killed in the Holocaust, and that Adolf Hitler went to heaven.
In a series of tweets over the past few days, Karlyn Borysenko has been outlining her beliefs that people make decisions about their lives before they "choose to be born," including when they die.
While answering a number question on the subject, Borysenko said this includes children who "choose to be aborted" as they could "choose to be born into human form" if they wanted.
Borysenko went on to suggest that even those who were killed in the Holocaust chose to do so spiritually for the "experience."
"Everyone who died in the Holocaust chose to die in the Holocaust before they were ever born because they collective[ly] wanted to understand the experience of ultimate oppression. That’s why Hitler went to heaven.”
