Gate to Dachau Concentration Camp: "Work makes one free"

At the entrance gates of certain concentration camps, including Auschwitz and Dachau, the Nazis erected signs that proclaimed “Arbeit macht frei” — “work sets one free” or “work is liberating” — one of history’s most gruesomely ironic examples of sloganeering.
