After That Mail Online Article ...

It began with a Mail Online article that was incredibly offensive.

This got picked up by The New Statesman:-

"The German slogan “Arbeit Macht Frei” is somewhat tainted by its connection with Nazi concentration camps, but its essential message, “work sets you free” still has something serious to commend it. There is dignity to be gained from any job, no matter how menial, and for young people at the start of their careers, there are valuable lessons to be learned from any form of employment, whether that is on the factory floor, on a supermarket till or in the contemporary hard labour camp of a merchant bank or law office."
"Wow. Good luck with the rehabilitation of that phrase."

Someone managed to grab a screen shot of the pic before the Daily Heil could delete it:-
