Students make model of Lety internment camp

A model of the Nazi internment camp for Czech Romanies at Lety was unveiled at the camp’s original site in Lety on Monday. The model was made by business school students in Teplice and completing it was a painstaking process since there is no proper documentation of the site. The students worked on the basis of several faded photographs from private photo-collections. The last survivor interned at the camp died last year. Over 1300 Romanies were interned in the Lety camp during the Nazi occupation, 327 of them perished in the camp and over 500 were sent to the extermination camp in Auschwitz.
