Answer is yes.

They went full Godwin on that one.

Well, it’s obvious a reference to Auschwitz. What point they were trying to make is anyone’s guess. It’s certainly in very bad taste.

Concur. That sign is vile.

Vicious Babushka,

If this was mistake on their part, it was a big one, but I have a hard time believing it was. Do the people that put that up, actually not realize how offensive it is?

I still don’t know what to make of it. This is an abandoned building, nobody works there—Packard went out of business in 1957.

Why someone made the signs and placed them there is a mystery, but since it is not really a crime, not even graffiti tagging, the police are not going to assign any resources to solve it.

Aside from the ridiculous level of godwining, it’s a poor bit of communication. Can’t tell if it’s RW (anti-semitic) or LW (Luddite). Could be neither—an architecture critic trying for artsy shock-jock.

I totally do not know the motives of the person(s) who put those signs up there. Maybe just want to get a bunch of attention? I don’t know what point they were trying to make.

It would be much more sinister if the signs were placed in a facility that is actively being used, but here it just makes no sense at all.

Free Press did a followup on the sign by interviewing a bunch of people who exclaimed how offended they were, but didn’t do any investigation of WHO put the sign there or why, or the reason they chose that particular venue.

 Frank says:

There were 45 men in the jail cell, the toilet and shower had never been cleaned, the temperature was 110 degrees so you couldn't sleep night or day, there were roaches in the oatmeal, sadistic guards, and everything that was nice. -- Zappa 1969 interview. This had happened during the days of Studio Z in Cucamonga (1963). Frank was released on bail (his father took out a bank loan to pay for it). Frank had been busted for "conspiracy to commit pornography," after making a silly recording of suggestive sexual sounds (giggling edited out) for someone who had asked him to provide a "special" tape recording for a stag night. That someone turned out to be Detective Willis of the San Bernadino Vice Squad. Their conversation was recorded by a hidden microphone and this was used as evidence at Zappa's trial.
