Gate of the Auschwitz concentration camp. The phrase "Arbeit macht frei" translates as "Work Sets You Free"
Gate of the Auschwitz concentration camp. The phrase "Arbeit macht frei" translates as "Work Sets You Free". The expression comes from the title of a novel by German philologist Lorenz Diefenbach, Arbeit macht frei: Erzählung von Lorenz Diefenbach (1873), in which gamblers and fraudsters find the path to virtue through labour.
This inscription was erected on the orders of the commandant Rudolf Hess. This particular sign was made by prisoner-labourers including Jan Liwacz, and the upper bowl in the B of the word ARBEIT is wider than the lower bowl—thus making the letter seem upside-down. The "flipped" B has fueled ongoing rumors that the apparent error was done on purpose as a signal to new arrivals about what was actually happening behind the facility's gates, but this style was seen elsewhere in the era.
