The 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.
