For those who are unversed, here’s the context:

Amongst the rioters, there was a man who was wearing what appeared to be a sweatshirt with “Camp Auschwitz” printed on it with the phrase “work brings freedom” printed below.

KL Auschwitz was a German Nazi concentration camp which existed around 1940–45. A vast majority of those sent to Auschwitz were Jews and they also accounted for the largest number of its victims. It was in these camps where Jews were brutally murdered in gas chambers by making them undress and wear robes instead. They were then locked inside and killed with Zyklon B gas.
