One of the bigger camps (capacity: 2.000 persons; a former Nazi military camp),
I only found the little attached picture and a short movie (bad quality)
at the following address:
|Klaus supplied the following photos: on the left, the area around Admont, Admont village and Monastery; and on the right Lager Admont in 1946 (erected 1938): (Photo source: Municipality of Admont)|
Here is the Admont camp copied from the Dr. Stieber's book: Nachkriegsflüchtlinge in Kärnten und der Steiermark (The Refugees After WW2 at Carinthia and Styria), 1997. I translated the legend; hopefully, in a proper way:
