Whom are they kidding?

Thieves steal Auschwitz's 'Arbeit macht frei' entrance sign

A gang of thieves in Poland has stolen the infamous wrought iron sign announcing that “work sets you free” that spans the main gate of the Auschwitz concentration camp.

The long, curving sign, reading “Arbeit macht frei”, was erected by the Nazis soon after the old Auschwitz barracks were converted into a labour and extermination centre in 1940. It was supposed to suggest that hard work would eventually allow inmates to walk free.

But, as Auschwitz was turned into a major hub for the Holocaust, murdering over a million people, the majority of them Jews, the sign became a mocking, cynical commentary.

“It seems that a gang of perhaps three people unscrewed the sign between three o’clock and five o’clock on Friday morning,” said the spokesman for the police in southern Poland, Dariusz Nowak. “They must have used a ladder and had a car waiting for them.”

The Jewish community in Poland and the Israel authorities expressed deep shock and dismay.

“This is very saddening,” Jaroslaw Mensfelt, the Auschwitz museum’s spokesman, said. “The thieves either didn’t know where they were or — what’s even worse — they did know but that didn’t prevent them from stealing." Police say that they are investigating all possible options. The obvious explanation seems to be that the theft was carried out by neo-Nazis.

Holocaust deniers have long targeted Auschwitz in an attempt to demonstrate that the systematic murder of Jews has been invented or exaggerated. Deniers have previously taken soil samples from the camp and made measurements in order to argue that the number of victims gassed and cremated was far smaller than claimed.

The camp museum directors have already stated that a replica has been made of the sign. The neo-Nazis could try to establish that the sign is fake and thus, by extension, claim that much of the camp is as well.

“We have already installed a replica sign over the gate,” Mr Mensfelt said. “We used it in the past when the original was being repaired. I hope the original will quickly be retrieved and the thieves caught.

“This is not only a theft, but a horrible profanation in a place where more than a million people were murdered in the biggest such site in this part of the world. It is a disgraceful act.”

There has always been a danger as Holocaust survivors and their Nazi murderers die out that the authenticity of the sites themselves would be questioned.

Auschwitz is made up primarily of red-brick buildings that formed part of Habsburgian barracks — used initially to imprison Polish political prisoners — and the wooden prisoner huts of Auschwitz-Birkenau.

Birkenau was the location of the gas chambers, but both parts of the old Nazi camp are showing signs of wear and tear as many hundreds of thousands of tourists visit the site, near Cracow, every year.

The critical question has been how far to restore the buildings and the crumbling personal possessions — the spectacles for example, removed from the corpses of those gassed to death, about 80,000 shoes and 3,800 suitcases — and risk opening up the museum to charges of falsification. In all there are 155 buildings, including crematoria, and about 300 ruins on the sprawling site.

The theft could be linked to the decision this week by Germans authorities to pay half the cost of patching up the buildings. About €60 million have been earmarked by Germany’s 16 federal states and by Chancellor Angela Merkel’s federal Government. The Auschwitz-Birkenau International Memorial Foundation has appealed for a total of €120 million.
