US man tried to steal item from Auschwitz death camp

A US man has been charged with attempting to steal part of the railway tracks leading to the former Auschwitz concentration camp. The 37-year-old tried to take a metal part of the tracks from the Nazi death camp. The man, who admitted his guilt, could face up to 10 years in prison for the attempted theft.

I want to imagine the guy was just with a crowbar trying to lift a whole segment of the train tracks and then hiding it under his jacket

what exactly did he try and steal? was it just like a railroad spike or something more significant?

10 years is a lot but I'm sure some see this as desecration of an important cultural site. I'm not sure the US would be impressed if a Polish man tried to chisel a bit off the Lincoln Memorial.

I legit wanted someone to bring me something back from Auschwitz. Why don't they have a souvenir shop?
