I gotta say, this is in really bad taste

I get the purpose, but really? Couldn't they have found a better way?


The proprietors of the Auschwitz concentration camp have found themselves in hot water after installing showers in the former Nazi extermination camp in a bid to “cool down” visitors to the onetime slaughterhouse, which is now a museum commemorating the Holocaust.

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.

1. I always thought it would add to the expeirence

If they had actors in nazi uniforms and barking dogs walking around terrorizing the guests.

Like the Pirates of the Caribbean ride at Disney Land

2. That's the ticket!

They could call it The Auschwitz Experience™.

All paying visitors get a souvenir Gold Star of David and henna tattoo number. As long as we're talking bad taste maybe they could have games for the kids like Pin The Nose On The Juden.

3. Those misters

 

are in every theme park and zoo I've visited in the last 15-20 years. Never once have I heard of them referred to as "showers" except in this piece. Much adieu over nothing. Do the whiners prefer heat-stroke victims adding to the death toll?

6. Probably

But you know as well as I do that image is everything and in a hypersensitive place like this, greater care should be taken.

4. Misters are not showers...

I had a nice mister set up in my back yard in El Paso, worked great, never even thought of them as showers..

oy, vay, and we wonder why people think we bitch alot...

Every story I see has just one person quoted, Meyer Bolka. I am truly sorry he is troubled by this and it triggers this response, but really? Seems a great stretch to equate the two, and say it actually effected him as he described.

5. There are similarities, but you don't need towels with misters.

7. you do when the monsoonal flow comes through

Humidity gets too high and they stop evaporating..

But seriously, a mister nozzle doesn't equate with a shower head.
