A court in Krakow, Poland issued a European warrant of arrest on Tuesday for a Swedish man who allegedly organized the theft of the famous “Arbeit Macht Frei” sign from the concentration camp in Auschwitz. The sign, which translates to "Work Sets You Free," disappeared from the former Nazi camp on December 18 last year.

Five Polish men are already in custody, suspected of participating in the heist. The sign was later recovered, cut into three pieces.

As part of the arrest warrant, any European Union country that finds the man is obliged to deliver him to Polish authorities.
