Auschwitz Famous Sign "Arbeit Macht Frei" Stolen, Recovered in Pieces

Disgusting.  Punks in Poland stole the famous sign over the entrance to the Nazi concentration camp, Auschwitz.  The sign was fabricated by Jewish inmates of the prison and read "Arbeit Macht Frei," or "Work Shall Set You Free."  Polish police recovered the sign, but it was cut into three pieces by the thieves, perhaps to make it easier to carry and conceal.  Three men are being questioned by the police.

The U.K. Telegraph has the story here.
