dachau - Stolen wrought iron gate of Dachau concentration camp near Munich will return next week in southern Germany. The Bavarian organization for monuments has let it know on Thursday.
The 100 kilo gate with the inscription Arbeit macht frei, appeared in November, about two years after the theft, around the coastal city of Bergen. It is not clear who stole the gate.
The wrought iron fence will not be put back in the old place after returning to Dachau, but is included after restoration of the permanent exhibition at the former concentration camp.
Dachau was the first major concentration camp of the Nazis. Between 1933 and 1945 there were more than 200 000 people being held across Europe, of whom 41 500 died. April 30 is paid to the 72nd anniversary of the liberation of the camp.
