Dachau Concentration Camp Gate Found Two Years After It Was Stolen


An iron gate with the slogan “Arbeit macht frei” (work will set you free) that was stolen from the former Nazi concentration camp in Dachau two years ago has been found in Norway, The Guardian reports.

“Due to an anonymous tipoff, police in Norway’s Bergen have secured an iron gate with the well-known text,” Bavaria state police said. “From the picture transmitted, police believe it is highly likely that this is the iron gate that was stolen from Dachau.”

The theft of the 220 pound gate was reported on November 2, 2014, sparking uproar. At the Dachau camp, more than 41,000 Jews were murdered during World War II.
