Edward Mosberg penned an open letter to Jackson on Tuesday after Jackson shared a quote alleging a Jewish conspiracy to oppress black people. According to ESPN, the since-deleted quote that Jackson wrongly attributed to Adolf Hitler claimed white Jews “will blackmail America. [They] will extort America, their plan for world domination won’t work if the Negroes know who they were.” Jackson also expressed admiration for Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan.
Mosberg’s response was shared by the official Twitter account of From The Depths, a millennial-run organization that “aims to preserve the memory of the Holocaust and to give a name to those who were brutally murdered,” according to its website. Mosberg is an honorary chairman of the organization, the name of which is a reference to Psalm 130.

“Almost my entire family was murdered by the German Nazis during the Holocaust,” Mosberg began. “I survived multiple German Nazi death camps, including the Mauthausen concentration camp, my late wife was a survivor of Auschwitz-Birkenau.”
The Philadelphia Eagles were then forced to release a statement about Jackson’s horrendous tweet:
