thats easy - money, that sign is known world wide, it would be worth a fortune. You can just imagine some super rich twat hanging it in his living room bragging thats the very sign of the Auschwitz death camp and original too. Problem for them they cant brag too much as it will be reported, you cant just make history like that dissapear. To many people care.
I agree, it makes me think that it was a commissioned robbery by Neo-Nazis, of course this is purely speculation.
It is not the same as robbing the Mona Lisa or some other world famous object, we all know the horror it signifies.
e a piece of work was commissioned by an SS officer whose property was stripped from him because of his crimes, the piece of work belongs to the Polish state and not to the artist who painted the piece
What exactly are you talking about?
Post a link if possible, I am just curious.
In 300 years, WW2 will be a footnote
I think it is more to do with what it became to represent, the third
Can you and obviously only a few others really not see the symbolic and actual value of this sign?
The only people that would want it would be Neo-Nazis though, no?
As you mentioned before, it'd be reported if it were just rich people.
I am of course just speculating, I can't see anyone else bragging about it.
Sell for big cash...
Yes but it is not like a famous piece of art, that most people would like, it represents something completely different, a time, a power and a genocide.
It's not good. What will they do if they can't find it? Everybody expects to see the "Arbeit Macht Frei" gate, it is a symbol.
They have another one that they used when this one was begin restored or repaired.
