"Arbeit macht frei" is a German phrase meaning "work brings freedom" or "work shall set you free/will free you" or "work liberates" and, literally in English, "work makes (one) free". The slogan is well-known for being placed at the entrances to a number of Nazi concentration camps. In 2006 the sign “Arbeit Macht Frei” underwent conservation oversight. 13 spots of rust were identified. During the two months of its restoration, the sign was replaced with a specially manufactured copy. At the very same moment, a second copy was manufactured in Israel for The Israel Museum. Two teams of metal workers had no awareness of each other’s work and had no contact. Yatziv follows both the Polish and Israeli teams as they separately work on projects to refabricate the infamous gateway from Auschwitz.
