Robert Keith Packer, the rioter pictured wearing the “Camp Auschwitz” sweatshirt” has been arrested, the New York Times reported.
In widely circulated photos, Packer could be seen in a Capitol atrium wearing a sweatshirt that read Camp Auschwitz, above a picture of a skull and the slogan “work brings freedom”– a loose translation of “Arbeit Macht Frei” which appeared on the gates of the Auschwitz concentration camp. The back of the sweatshirt simply read “Staff.”
