Sign of the Times

An UPDATE, courtesy of Julie, and luckily of the good kind…

As a result of an intense search, investigators have already recoverd the infamous “Arbeit Macht Frei” sign that had been stolen from Auschwitz only a few days ago (see below).

It boggles my mind, not only that authorities could have found it so quickly, but that they discovered it had been cut into three pieces. Neo-Nazis apparently were not involved.

You can read more here at the Yahoo link I was provided. It’s a rather scattershot retelling, however, and you might want to find a New York Times/International Herald Tribune version if this is your first encounter with the crime and its follow-up.
