One of the most chilling reminders of the Holocaust has been found by the Polish Government. The sign outside the Auschwitz concentration camp which said Arbeit Macht Frei (Work Will Set You Free) was taken down from the gate of the former death camp sometime Friday night.
Police spokeswoman Katarzyna Padlo said police believe it was stolen between 3:30 a.m. and 5 a.m. Friday morning, when museum guards noticed that it was missing and alerted police.
Padlo also said that the iron sign, which spanned a gate at the main entrance to the former Nazi death camp in southern Poland, was removed by being unscrewed on one side and pulled off on the other.

Small nitpick, actully it translates to “Work Makes You Free”.
Any info? Was it neo-nazi skinheads, or muslims?
If it were neo-nazi freaks then throw the book at them. If it were some stupid idiots then give them community service. I know, same crime but not the same motivation.
and i suppose it’s possible that it’s some variant of the drunk hooligan type. Guess we’ll see. But i think it must have a political meaning, like muslims, skinheads,,etc. If it was some soccer fans on a binge, i think they would have told us real quick.
As in that “nothing to see here” mode.
