In memoriam Boris Priadchenko.

We have just learned about the death of Boris Priadchenko. He passed away on September 28, at the age of 92. Like his wife Valentina, health-wise weakened since 2015, we knew, for the last several months, that he was tired.

Stolen gate returns home

22 February: the gate that was stolen two years ago, has been returned to the memorial site in Dachau.

returnofthegateIMG 0153The gate, bearing the slogan "Arbeit macht frei," ( "Work sets you free,") was located in the Bergen area of Norway after authorities received an anonymous tip last year.

The gate will not be returned to its original position at the entrance, where a copy now stands, but will become part of the permanent exhibition and it will be kept inside a transparent cabinet equipped with an alarm system.
