Poland to ask Sweden for help over theft of Auschwitz sign

Breaking News

Poland will formally seek Sweden's help in investigating the theft of the "Arbeit Macht Frei" ("Work Sets You Free") sign from the Auschwitz memorial, confirming that Polish authorities suspect a Swedish link in the crime.

Polish media have been reporting that the theft was commissioned by a collector living in Sweden, but investigators have not confirmed that.

Earlier this week allegations concerning who ordered the theft, and why, surfaced in Swedish newspaper reports after the former leader of a Swedish Nazi group claimed that it had been stolen to order for a collector in England, France or the United States.
