Polish investigators have brought three men who confessed to roles in the brazen theft of the infamous Auschwitz sign back to the former Nazi death camp to reenact how it was stolen. Police found the cut-up "Arbeit Macht Frei" ("Work Sets You Free") sign on Sunday and arrested five suspects in northern Poland. So far, three of the five men have confessed to Friday's pre-dawn theft of the sign that symbolizes Nazi atrocities during World War II. Prosecutor Piotr Kosmaty said Tuesday that the three were taken to the site to show the investigators how they unscrewed and tore off the 16-foot (5-meter) -long sign. Later, police will show the sign to media.
