Warsaw, Poland - Polish prosecutors say they have identified the mastermind of last month’s theft of the sign over the gate at Auschwitz and will seek his arrest and extradition.

The sign, which was found Dec. 20 cut in three pieces, says “Arbeit Macht Frei,” or “Work Sets You Free.”

Artur Wrona, the Krakow prosecutor, said Wednesday that Swedish prosecutors had identified the suspect as Anders H., a Swede; Polish prosecutors withheld his last name. Five Poles are under arrest in the theft.

I don't see why he's called a "mastermind"!! What's so master about stealing a sign? Yes brining down twin towers, etc requires a lot planning, ideas, knowledge and more, but to steal a sign???

No such thing as a polish mastermind. Never happened. The guy is going to go free if he has a mastermind lawyer.
Remember, if the glove don't fit, you got to acquit.

The mastermind is Swedish, not Polish. Are you Polish?
