Even if you don’t know any German you will know what those 3 words mean. Arbeit macht Frei- Work will set you free.
3 simple words which had such a great impact. The Nazis turned these words, which when you look at them basically had an honorable intend, into the most despicable words ever uttered.
They gave a false sense of hope to those who arrived at the concentration camps and death camps. For it made them believe if they would work hard and do as their were told they would be set free.
Many didn’t even get to see those words over the gates for they had already perished on the transport to Auschwitz,Dachau or any of the other camps.
Arbeit macht Frei where it should have said “Hier wirst du sterben” -Here you will die.
