"Arbeit Macht Frei" (Work Brings Freedom) was the sign over the gates of Auschwitz. It was placed there by Major Rudolf Hoss, commandant of the camp.

This is not an accurate depiction of the original sign. The original sign had the B upside down as an act of defiance!!!! It was made by the prisoners of Auschwitz.
The Commandant's name was Hess not Hoss.

Hi Irwin!
The sign in the picture is not the original? Do you have any info on where the original is?
