Police recover gate stolen from Holocaust concentration camp

AN iron gate stolen from the Dachau concentration camp in Germany has been found ... in western Norway.

The gate with the Nazi slogan "Arbeit macht frei" ("Work sets you free") was stolen in November 2014. It was found in a parking lot in a town near Bergen, Norway's second largest city.

However, police have no leads on who stole it, or why.

"Our forensic teams have found no useable evidence like DNA," police spokeswoman Kari Bjoerkhaug Trones said.

More than 40,000 prisoners died at Dachau, near Munich, during the Second World War.
