Auschwitz 1, Arbeit macht frei

Auschwitz 1, 'Arbeit macht frei'

"Work makes you free" -- but it usually meant death for the prisoners in the end. After the original sign was vandalized a few years ago, it was moved to a museum, and a replica was erected.

This beautifully clear shot brings home the horror of what humanity is capable of doing, one to another, under extraordinary circumstances..
