    No. Those misters are all over Europe. Its how you can keep cool while being outside, especially during the heat waves.

    No. How else are they supposed to deal with the temperatures?

    I don't think it's something to get offended by They're not a simulation, they're a tool to make sure people don't overheat. I didn't think Poland was that hot a place to need them, but I guess "hot" is subjective.

    Like every other place in Europe? Nobody has AC and I have never ever seen misters...

    I think that is ridiculous, they have those all over the place to cool people off.

    Plus, I don't believe they even used the fake showers in the gas chambers at Auschwitz. Didn't they use Zyklon-B pellets that they just threw in the chamber?

    I watched s documentary about Auschwitz in Netflix and they talked about that.

    I have seen them in England and Ireland at open-air museums!

    I mean, I can understand why some people are offended by this, but at the same time I can't think of an efficient way for the museum to cool visitors outside.

    I can't bring myself to be offended by this. I can see how people find it tasteless but it's hot.

    I can see why it is sensitive to some people. But it's not inherently offensive. Like all the cases of ridiculous "trigger warnings" for delicate snowflakes, I think people need to remember that just because something makes them uncomfortable or unhappy doesn't mean it needs to disappear for everyone.
