Apparently the sign at the gates of Auschwitz was stolen.


I'm a history buff so I'm sad to see this happened and fail to see a reason.

Sorry about the title, mods. I didn't post in breaking news so I took liberty with the original title of "Arbeit Macht Frei"

I hope they recover it, it is an extremely poignant object that stands as a reminder of the evil of men, and acts as a caution for those who would repeat the Nazi's mistakes.

I think it was probably stolen to order for a collector of Nazi memorabilia.

It would be worth an absolute fortune!

All the best, Kiwifoot!
