What's with these
right-wing left wing neo-Nazis denying the Holocaust? Stealing the 'Arbeit Macht Frei' sign is worse enough.
To walk up and do something like this...which would take a bit of effort....you’d really have to know the operation there. I don’t think it was the Nazis. I suspect it was disenchanted staff members taking out frustrations on the management.
Face it...what do you with a sign like this? You can’t show to anyone or the word gets out with the cops finding out. The logic of some Nazis stealing it for “show”...I find issues with.
Who else would want this but neo-Nazi types? An unfortunate incident that removes a valuable piece of history.
“The theft in the early hours of yesterday was seen as an attempt by right-wing extremists to muddy the narrative of the Holocaust.”
That makes perfect sense. After all, if you can steal the object in question you automatically re-write history. E.g., if Southern Nationalists somehow stole the Lincoln Memorial, then Southerners would have more ammo in their attempt to convince people that we won the war. Brilliant.
This entire piece reads like some Orwellian satire piece.
If someone really wanted to “muddy” the narrative of the Holocaust they would have stolen the fake unattached chimney that is part of the late 1940’s Soviet reconstruction at Auschwitz.
But that sign, 'Work Sets You Free' is the mantra of Marxists. So I'd be looking under the other 'wing' for the culprits.
so just put up a replica.
if they don’t do that, then this was an inside job.
Basically, even though they don't believe it happened, they wish it did and they would like to make a new one. Clear enough?
The Nazis were left-wing extremists.
After 60 years, you'd think all those big-brained certified journalists might get that correct.
Unless... gasp... they're deliberately switching the terms!
