Well, I live in a country with a great deal of history and I abhor acts of vandalism and theft against that history.
Auschwitz is an historical site, so no real difference and the sign did play an important cynical twist in the camp.
Maybe you should go to Auschwitz and perhaps you would appreciate why this particular act carries such poignancy. If you are unable to claw your way
through your cynicism and see that the theft would be highly emotional, then shame on you.
I should add that like all Nazi extermination camps, the Jews did not hold a monopoly on the suffering. In Auschwitz, well over a million Jews
(estimates vary 1m-3m) met their untimely ends alongside over 150,000 local Poles and countless Gypsies and other nationals deemed worthy of
extermination by the Nazi State. Auschwitz is a monument to all who suffered and met their end there, regardless of their nationality or
