Polish police to Ynet: Anti-Semitism being checked as Auschwitz theft motive

A police spokeswoman in Cracow said in a conversation with Ynet that the five suspects in the theft of the "Arbeit Macht Frei" sign from the Auschwitz death camp have been investigated since Sunday.


"All leads are being examined, and we are also checking whether the motive was anti-Semitic," said the spokeswoman, adding that the current assumption is that the thieves operated out of financial motives rather than nationalistic ones, however "it is still not clear how they planned on making money off of the sign."
