It appears no site is safe from reckless tourists, even one drenched in tragedy and violence. The Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp became the target of an American tourist’s attempt to steal pieces of the train tracks where millions of Jewish people were unloaded and sentenced to death. In 2009, someone made off with the Nazi slogan sign “Arbeit Macht Frei” (Work Will Set You Free) from the main gate which was later found cut into pieces.
