There are two interesting things about this photo. One is that the infamous and cruelly ironic gate from the Auschwitz death camp saying ‘Arbeit Macht Frei’ is usually photographed as the focus of the image, and here you see it from the side. The other even more unusually seeming thing is the fact that there’s relatively a lot of life in the picture – a bird and a person walking. It’s quite poignant because it shows how much this place changed even though it’s intact because it’s a museum. photofree exgif stockphoto
