Desecration and Dismay

The iron sign over the gates of Auschwitz, bearing the legend “Arbeit Macht Frei” (“Work will set you free”, a cynical and disgusting sentiment no matter how you parse it), has been stolen.

To consider this disturbing and monumentally evil is to understate the point. I sincerely hope the words, as horrible a reference to an infamous period of world history they may be, are recovered quickly.

I am currently without further words myself.
