Auschwitz sign preserved

By JONATHAN WOLFMAN

You’ll recall when thugs hired by a right-wing Swedish financier in 2009 stole and broke into pieces the “Arbeit Macht Frei” (“Work Sets You Free”) sign that, in cruel irony, welcomed those delivered to their deaths at the Auschwitz-Birkenau main gate. It was returned after a Polish investigation and was restored.

The memorial site curators now say that the sign will be displayed indoors so as to better preserve it. A replica will hang at the gate.
