The latest news in the case of a sign stolen from Auschwitz is that the Polish thieves allegedly committed the crime on behalf of a Swedish client.

A Swede suspected of masterminding the theft of the sign at Auschwitz actually met with the Poles who carried out the crime, a prosecutor said. There are reports that the Swedish man either belongs to a neo-Nazi group or was working for a private collector.

The sign, which in English means “Work Sets You Free,” hung over the entrance to the Nazi death camp where more than a million people were killed, most of them Jews.
