Arbeit Macht Frei [Work sets you Free] adorns the gate at Auschwitz. It greeted all new inmates to the camp. It was intended to create the illusion of safety, and hope. It is one of the greatest statements of cynical deception ever written. I have imagined a current world, but one which follows a triumphant Germany, and a museum at Auschwitz-Birkenau that celebrates a different kind of shrine.
