Sprinklers have been installed near the Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum, leading to criticisms of insensitivity because of their perceived similarity to the Nazi gas chambers.

“I don’t know about you, but I don’t feel comfortable going into a shower at the entrance to an extermination camp,” Rabbi Rafi Ostroff wrote on Facebook, alongside pictures of the mist sprinklers.
