On what gate was it written "Labor frees" and why?
- At the gates of Auschwitz
"Arbeit macht frei" - "Labor frees"
known also under the German names A # 769, Ushvitz, or, completely, the concentration camp Auschwitz-Birkenau (Polish O # 347; wi # 281; cim, German Auschwitz, KZ Auschwitz-Birkenau) a set of German concentration camps located in 19401945 on south of Poland, near the city of Auschwitz, at 60 km west of Krakow. Above the entrance to Auschwitz hung a slogan: Arbeit macht frei (Labor frees). Included in the list is World Heritage.
Auschwitz 1 served as the administrative center of the whole complex. It was founded 20 May 1940 year on the basis of brick two and three-storey buildings of the former Polish, and earlier Austrian barracks. The first group, consisting of 728 Polish political prisoners, arrived in the camp 14 June of the same year. For two years the number of prisoners ranged from 13 to 16 thousand, and by 1942 20 000. The SS selected some prisoners, mostly Germans, to keep track of the others. Prisoners of the camps were divided into classes, which was visually reflected by stripes on clothes. 6 days a week, except Sundays, prisoners were required to work. The exhausting work schedule and meager food have caused numerous deaths. In the Auschwitz camp 1, there were separate units that served for various purposes. In blocks 11 and 13, punishments were made for violators of the list of rules of the camp. People in 4 people were placed in so-called standing cameras with an area of 1 sq. meter, where they had to stand all night. More stringent measures meant slow killings: those guilty either were put in a sealed cell, where they died from lack of oxygen, or simply starved to death. Between the blocks 10 and 11 was a torture yard, where prisoners were at best shot. The wall, which was shot, still exists.
3 September 1941 SS produced the first test of gas etching in the 11 block, killing around 600 Soviet prisoners. The test was recognized as successful, and one of the bunkers was redesigned into a gas chamber and a crematorium. The camera functioned with 1941 on 1942, and then it was rebuilt in the SS air-raid shelter. Subsequently, the camera and crematorium were recreated from original details and exist to this day as a monument to the cruelty of the Nazis. In modern Germany, German propaganda argues that the use of the medical service of SS Cyclone B was necessary out of compassion

- Back in 1943 - and probably later - Hitler and his staff did not lose hope for the victory of Germany, and the winners, as is known, are not judged. Therefore, it is not easy to explain why the genocide never waited for public approval, why even in the most secret documents it acts under cryptonyms like "Umsiedlung" ("immigration", that is, the death penalty). This bilingualism, says Aspernicus, was an attempt to reconcile the uncooperative. The Germans, noble arias, true Europeans, heroes-winners, turned out to be killers of defenseless people; the first in words, the second in practice. That's why we needed an impressive dictionary of renaming and falsifications, such as "Arbeit macht frei" "Labor frees" (German) - an inscription on the gates of the Nazi camps, "Umsiedlung", "Endlosung" and other euphemisms of bloodshed. But this falsification affected, contrary to the aspirations of Hitlerism, the belonging of the Germans to the Christian culture, which left such imprint on them so deep that they could not go beyond the limits of the gospel with all their will. In the circle of Christian culture, the author notes, even when everything can already be done, one can not yet say. This culture is an irreversible factor, because otherwise nothing would stop the Germans from calling their actions by name.
- Let this never happen again!
I will return to you, Russia,
To hear the noise of your forests,
To see the blue rivers,
To follow the path of my fathers
(Verses written by Sachsenhausen's prisoner)
And what it was a gate, it is necessary to ask those who were there, but there are very few of them left.
Leaving the camp some could not look back, and someone until death could not pronounce the name of the camp.
- in Auschwitz and in Dachau, that's the way the Germans joked
- Concentration camp Auschwitz and Dachau. "Arbeit macht frei" - "Labor frees."
The slogan was placed at the entrance of many Nazi concentration camps, either in mockery or for giving false hope. Despite the fact that the use of inscriptions of this type over the entrances to various institutions was a widespread phenomenon in Germany, this slogan was placed on the orders of General of the SS Troops Teodor Aike, the leader of the concentration camp of Germany and the commandant of the Dachau concentration camp.
- Arbeit Macht Frei.
an inscription above the gates of concentration camps. there were such inscriptions in Auschwitz, Birkenau, Terezin, Sachsenhausen, etc.
and why? ss-sheep Teodor Aike ordered - so they began to write.
Here are pictures of these signs
the slogan itself is the name of the book of Lorentz Diefenbach 1872
- On the gates of one of the most terrible of all the "death camps"-the German camp complex of Auschwitz,
in the system of German camps during the Second World War, renamed by the Germans in Auschwitz,
which the head of the SS Heinrich Himmler planned for the complete destruction of all Jews ...
Originally, the camp was planned for 10 000 people, but in March 1941, Mr. Himmler gave instructions
expand the camp to 30 000 people ... At 3-km from Auschwitz, in the village of Brzezinka (Birkenau) built a camp
Auschwitz II, who went down in history with his "death cells", later Auschwitz III also "discovered" 40 branches.
The building was led by the officer Rudolf Hess, who became the first commandant of the camp. The first prisoners
Auschwitz became Polish prisoners of war, whose forces built the main camp. In the fall of 1941, the Germans
drove about 10 000 Soviet soldiers, their hands erected a camp in Brzezinka. To the prison camp
tattooed on their left hand their identification number, from that moment ceased to exist
names, surnames, there was only a number. On the clothes, everyone had identification marks:
the Jews have a red-yellow triangle, the Russians have a black triangle. The appearance of an unmarked camp on the street
sign threatened at best with beating, at worst - sending to the gas chamber.
At the Nuremberg trial, according to the Soviet side, it was alleged that "during the time of existence
Auschwitz camp, German executioners destroyed at least 4 million people in it. "Rudolf Hess pointed out the number
victims in 2,5 million, according to the information of Auschwitz historian František Pieper, through the camp for his entire time
about 1,3 million people (of which only 400 thousand registered), of which
Survived about 200 thousand prisoners.
The oath, carved on one of the walls of the present museum in Auschwitz, sounding a passionate appeal to humanity:
"NIGDY WIEGEJ OGWIECIMIA" - WILL NEVER BE RETRIEVED BY THE OBVENTISM!
Ludo van Eckhout
- At the gates of the concentration camp "Dachau", but only by the established prejudice ...
Arbeit macht frei phrase in German, translated as "Work makes it free" or "Labor frees." However, this slogan was placed at the entrance of many Nazi concentration camps, either in mockery, or to give false hope to their prisoners. Despite the fact that the use of inscriptions of this type over the entrances to various institutions was a widespread phenomenon in Germany, specifically this slogan was placed on the orders of General of the SS Troops Teodor Aike, the leader of the concentration camp of Germany and the commandant of the Dachau concentration camp - that is probably why this inscription is placed on the gates of the Dachau concentration camp.
For example, I quote the gates of some other concentration camps with a similar inscription:
The inscription Arbeit Macht Frei on the gates of the concentration camp Sachsenhausen
The inscription Arbeit Macht Frei in Auschwitz, with perverted B.
The inscription Arbeit Macht Frei in the concentration camp Terezin in the Czech Republic.
