What's the Yiddish Word for Rubbing Salt in Someone's Wounds?

We reported last week that it's been confirmed that Anne Frank's father tried desperately to get her and her family out of The Netherlands and into the U.S., but was turned back by the Lou Dobbs Ron Paul immigration barriers of the time. Now New York Democrat Steve Israel wants to make her a U.S. citizen. Yeah, that totally makes up for our country letting her and millions of others die.
"The best way we can honor Anne Frank in death is to give her what her father sought for her in life," Israel said.

[...]

Bernd Elias, a German cousin of Anne Frank, living in Switzerland told The New York Times: "I cannot see the point. She saw herself as Dutch."

Another cousin living in San Diego, Edith Gordon, said: "It doesn't seem right to me somehow, when we didn't let her into the country."
Not right in deed.
