“Arbeit Macht Frei” – the infamous text everyone knows. It translates to “Work Makes (You) Free” and it has become a symbol of the Nazi regime in a way. It’s placed on the gate of the Auschwitz extermination camp, now a museum. Most things got left exactly as they were when the camp was operating, including this place. To see it not in black and white (like you usually do in old pictures) is quite poignant. photofree exgif stockphoto
