A FORMER leading European neo-Nazi has claimed a role in the theft of the Auschwitz Holocaust sign. Anders Hoegstrom – founder of the anti-immigrant National Socialist Front in Sweden in the 1990s – allegedly organised the crime. The infamous “Arbeit Macht Frei” sign at the concentration camp bears the three most powerful words from the Nazi killing machine. Hoegstrom told a Swedish newspaper: “My role was to get the sign in Poland. I was the middleman and was supposed to take care of the sale.”
