Le travail rend libre .....

I've never been to this place, and in my life, perhaps I could never go; But I think that when one goes beyond this sentence, fear and chill should settle in every soul ..... .........

Hmmm yes its because those sayings were used for the KZ but all in all the sentence itself is not that wrong xD
Just used in a very very wrong way X___X

The expression is partly true, the work brings freedom because it gives the power to do many things with the money earned;

 but in this case, actually, this phrase is slightly displaced .

slighty yes.

you should see in Birkenau, Auschwitz- in the large houses they had to sleep in beds with 40 people at the roof beams was written "sei Hygienisch" - be higienically - was of course not possible Ö-ö so stupid

Of course!
I read several books and these sentences written in the barracks, demonstrate a cruel cynicism!
no one will ever really know what  feel those who lived it.

Rudolf Höß, the Kommandant, had been in prison earlier in his life when he was very young, and he had remembered a sign in the prison that stated "Arbeit Macht Frei." It had made a good impression on him and he felt it helped him to be reflective about why he was in prison, what he had done wrong to be there. This was the purpose of the sign here in Auschwitz too; to make the prisoners reflect and learn. Auschwitz and the other KZ were work camps, and many of the people who went there were criminals; the idea was to rehabilitate them as much as possble. Many of them were released from the camp after a period of imprisonment and work. It was only at the end of the War, when Germany's infrastructure had been destroyed by the Allies and hunger and disease were rampant (all over the country too and not just in KZ) that people starved and died from typhus and other diseases. No way to bury them or even cremate them all, and may of the SS guards were sick too, which is why bodies were lying all over rather than being buried or cremated. What you see at Auschwitz, by the way, has largely been built after 1945.

Ich liebe das Lesen über Deutschland! Wir fahren dort viel und ich studieren und zu sammeln Dinge aus vielen Epochen der deutschen Geschichte. Mein Deutsch ist nicht so gut, so bitte vergib mir für Fehler, lol. Mein Mann ist Österreicher und ist sehr fließend ^ ^

My husband's family is from Graz. We were hoping to be able to come back to Germany this year but now it looks like we will have to wait until 2015. We will have to be patient^^

Thanks :D

hmm...yes but.. I had no real emotions when I visited it... it is past. My family died because of enemies, too.... ._. Of course the cruelty...god. Typical for the Germans to have so much system...even in that case :I
The hair...was shocking for me. and the thin bodies ---

For me as a history obsessed (especially German history) it was shocking but somehow also interesting. I absolutely agree with you... it's past, but I think it's a good thing that we are able to talk about it. Yes, yes... the hair was a little bit too much for me too...
