Mock Nazi camp in Debica, Poland

The authorities of the Debica region in southern Poland have decided to construct a replica of a Nazi concentration camp. The copy of the camp would be situated in the locality of Pustkow , where a Nazi concentration camp operated during WWII. Some 3 thousand Poles, 7 thousand Jews and 5 thousand Soviet POW were murdered there. The replica of the camp with the main entrance gate, barracks for prisoners surrounded by barbed wire is to stand near the Mountain of Death a memorial to the victims of the Pustkow camp. The initiative would be financed by EU funds and as the authorities of the region says will have an educational and commemorative aim.
