Detroit Auschwitz Sign An 'Intentional, Malicious Act' of Hatred


The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) has expressed outrage that windows at the former Packard Plant in Detroit were emblazoned with the words “Arbeit Macht Frei” (Work Makes Free), the infamous work slogan used by the Nazi tormentors at the concentration camp Auschwitz to deceive and dehumanize prisoners. 

The letters of the Nazi slogan were apparently written out on poster board and displayed in windows across a covered bridge over a roadway at the historic former automotive plant, which is no longer in use.
