The inscription reads: Arbeit Macht Frei

Translations:

  • Work will set you free
  • Work liberates

The same cynical slogan was written over the gates of most Nazi concentration camps, including Dachau, Sachenhausen, Theresienstadt and Gross-Rosen.

Inmates who were chosen for slave labour had their own saying or motto, which was "Der Weg in die Freiheit führt durch den Schornstein" - "The route to freedom leads up the chimney".

Buchenwald had the slogan: "Jedem das Seine" - "To each [according to] his just deserts".

Incidentally, both sayings predate the Nazis.

I'm not quite sure what you mean. Obviously, when the Allies reached concentration camps they liberated them. The Soviet Army reached the three main sites of Auschwitz on 27 Janaury 1945 and were greeted by about 7,500 survivors, all of them malnourished and many of them desperately ill.

The words "Arbeit Macht Frei" at the gate of Auschwitz are generally translated as "Work will set you free".

Entrance? what do you mean? Whatever it is anyway you probably can't do it.

The correct words are Arbeit Macht Frei. They are German words. They were a slogan on a large arching sign that was over the entrance to the Auschwitz death camp. The words literally mean , 'Work Makes Free,' but they've been interpreted to mean 'Work Liberates,' or 'Work Sets You Free.'

An article by Franczisek Piper, head of research at the Auschwitz Museum, published in 1989 gives these estimates:Entered Auschwitz - about 1.3 million.Left Auschwitz alive - about 190,000.This does not, however, mean that 190,000 survived the Holocaust. Many were moved to other camps, where they perished.

They were Auschwitz concentration camp numbers and did not have any 'meaning'.

The first inscription you see are directions. They read: Top right, lower left, top right, top left, top left, lower left. Following these directions gets you to the next inscription, as well as some items. The other inscription reads: Friendship all lives tough other lives to create something anew and alive. I presume that this inscription is linked somehow towards Team Galactic, however since I can't remember if there is a part in the story concerning this inscription, I can't verify it. Anyways, hope this helped :D
