Stolen Auschwitz Entrance Gate Sign "Arbeit Macht Frei" Found

The stolen Auschwitz entrance gate sign "Arbeit Macht Frei" was found. No motive is being reported or released, and the sign was damaged, intentionally cut into three pieces.

"The "Arbeit macht frei" sign stolen from Auschwitz in southern Poland has been found in the north and five men have been arrested, police say.

They said the metal sign from the main gate, which symbolises for many the atrocities of Nazi Germany, had been cut into three pieces.

A major search was launched after the sign was stolen before dawn on Friday.

Its theft, the motive for which was not being reported, caused outrage in Israel and among Polish politicians.
