Doesn't Netflix care that their show is misleading???

Please don't watch ‘The Devil Next Door’ on Netflix, or at least be aware of a serious issue with it.

You may have heard that Polish Prime Minister, Mateusz Morawiecki, wrote a letter to Netflix chief Reed Hastings over “inaccurate” series ‘The Devil Next Door’. What you may not know is that Netflix doesn't seem to care and the show is available without any corrections to it.

In the show you can see a map with the locations of several locations of the worst concentration camps of WWII and all of them are shown in modern Poland (left picture) instead of the map from 1939-44 (right) without Poland in it and German Reich and Soviet Union instead, since they both occupied Polish territory.

Mr Morawiecki wrote: 
“Certain works available through your network are hugely inaccurate – and to be an extent obfuscating historical facts and whitewashing actual perpetrators of these crimes,” he wrote. “It has come to my attention that a recently released documentary series The Devil Next Door involves a map that falsely places several German Nazi concentration camps within modern-day Poland’s borders. There is no comment or any explanation whatsoever that these sites are German-operated. 

Not only is the map incorrect, but it deceives viewers into believing that Poland was responsible for establishing and maintaining these camps, and for committing the crimes therein. As my country did not even exist at that time as an independent state, and millions of Poles were murdered at these sites, this element of The Devil Next Door is nothing short of rewriting history,”
