"Arbeit Macht Frie"

Other WWII related issues on this 60th anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima & Nagasaki. The developer of the Heinz Lofts apparently wasnt aware that their large, wrought-iron "Heinz Lofts" sign spanning two rebuilt Victorian turrets of the former factory has a strong resemblence to the wrought-iron entry to Auschweitz.

Tasteless... whether that applies to them or me is up to you.

Frei. Sorry to nitpick.

Yes, quite tasteless. That's why I only use Hunt's Lofts.

The Heinz Lofts wrought iron architecture mimicks the original wrought iron look that HJ Heinz had in place from the 1920's, prior to Hitler and the Nazis.
