All of the following historical events demonstrate irony except for one. Which of the following does NOT show irony?
"SPRING 1944. . . . The trees were in bloom. It was a year like so many others, with its spring, its engagements, its weddings, and its births."
"ARBEIT MACHT FREI. Work makes you free. Auschwitz."
"AFTER THE WAR, I learned the fate of those who had remained at the infirmary. They were, quite simply, liberated by the Russians, two days after the evacuation."
"The next day brought really disquieting news: German troops had penetrated Hungarian territory with the government's approval."
"From time to time, SS officers on motorcycles drove the length of the column to shake off the growing apathy: 'Hold on! We're almost there! . . . We're arriving in Gleiwitz!'"
