Two days after White House press secretary Sean Spicer was accused of making a misleading statement about Hitler's use of chemical weapons, the Anti-Defamation League has offered to help educate him on the Holocaust.

During Tuesday's White House press briefing, Spicer compared Adolf Hitler to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad after the latter was accused of attacking his own people with chemical weapons last week.

Spicer at first said Hitler never used chemical weapons on his own people, which he later clarified to mean Hitler never attacked his own people via chemical bombs dropped from airplanes — which Assad was accused of doing.

The Anti-Defamation League responded by sending Spicer a letter that offered to teach him and other White House staffers about the atrocities of World War II.

"While you have apologized, this week's incident as well as others (notably, the International Holocaust Remembrance Day statement omitting Jews and your vociferous defense of it), have exposed a serious gap in your knowledge of the Holocaust, its impact, and the lessons we can learn from it," the letter from ADL CEO Jonathan A. Greenblatt reads.

"We have conducted trainings for more than 130,000 law enforcement professionals and more than 35,447 educators, reaching more than 1,000,000 students," Greenblatt wrote.

"ADL would be happy to conduct one of these trainings at your convenience for you, your staff, and anyone at the White House who may need to learn more about the Holocaust."

Millions of Jews died during the Holocaust, which included the use of gas chambers.
