Photographer's Note

"Arbeit macht frei" is a German phrase meaning "work makes (you) free".The slogan is known for having been placed over the entrances to a number of Nazi concentration camps during World War II, including most infamously Auschwitz I, where it was made by prisoners with metalwork skills and erected by order of the Nazis in June 1940.

I have recently been to Auschwitz, it is an experience terrible ... it is very hard but I think it is useful to remember
