“Arbeit macht Frei”
German police have launched an investigation into the theft of the infamous iron sign on the gate of the entrance to the Dachau concentration camp that reads “Arbeit mach Frei” (work sets you free).
According to German news magazine Der Spiegel, police noticed that the black wrought iron door with the Nazi slogan had gone missing early Sunday morning.
A search in the vicinity of the memorial was initially unsuccessful, according to the report. Police could not confirm whether a neo-Nazi or a“collector” was behind the theft.
