Mist showers have reportedly been installed at the death camp’s entrance to help tourists battle the high summer temperatures in Poland, where Auschwitz is located.

However, for some Jewish visitors to the museum, the showers have evoked harsh memories of the execution of more than 1.1 million at the death camp, many of whom were murdered by being marched into showers filled with poison gas.

I'm getting really fucking sick of that word "outrage".

Is it just me, or has the usage of it exploded over the past couple of years?

Makes for a witty t-shirt.


I went to Auschwitz, and all I got was a free shower.

Link Posted: 8/31/2015 4:57:04 PM EDT
The "showers"back then was not a shower it was  gas chamber

The "showers" now are outdoor misters to keep visitors cool so they can honor the dead.

ungrateful people need to man the f__ up, globally.

cooling/misting stations are far from being "showers..."

That's marketing buzzwords for you.

Hey, remember ASSAULT everything in the 90s, TACTICAL in the 00s? Same shit.

OUTRAGE, for some reason, is still getting people to pay attention for a few seconds. So they throw it in everywhere. And people like hearing about why other people are mad apparently.

Honestly, this time, yes. Good intentions but a really poor choice. I do think though, that as we go farther away in time from these events, more dumb stuff is likely to happen.
Link Posted: 8/31/2015 5:26:15 PM EDT
If it makes it easier for more folks to visit the site then go for it.  The more people whom are educated the more power to make sure the Holocaust never happens again, to any race, creed, color or religion.

Those mist showers probably aren't enough to curtail heat injury. They should further mitigate the grave threat by adjusting the facilities climate control systems, as I hear they run the ovens constantly.

Also, they should have park employees, appropriately uniformed of course, go around and use squirt guns to help cool guests off even more. To prevent inconvenience, they should just squirt the guests in the back of the head.

Those "showers" are probably cooling misters.   People are getting upset that they wanted more people to learn about the horrors of the holocaust by making visitors more comfortable in the heat (especially elderly and kids).   The more people who go there and actually see things with their own eyes = the best way to make sure it never happens again.
