The scale model of the Mauthausen camp

May

On May 5, 1945, the KL Mauthausen was liberated. Out of more than 200,000 inmates in the main camp and the satellite camps, only one half of them survived. Of 4,100 Slovenes, only a few more than 2,500 came home.

The scale model of the Mauthausen camp was made by the young Russian Serjoža. He handed it over to the then president of the international camp committee and former inmate Dušan Stefančič at the 65th anniversary of the liberation of the camp. Dušan Stefančič donated it to the museum.
