Yazidi refugees Hazim Elias Khadeda (22) and his sister Leena Elias Khadeda (16) photographed in front of the abandoned building of the Royal Technical School of Leros.
This building was built in the 1930 under Italian occupation as baracks for the submarine crews stationed on the island. After WWII it was turned into a a reeducation camp for the children of Greek Communists and into a technical school. From the mid 1950s until 1967 it was a technical school with boarding facilities. During the time of the military Junta in Greece it was turned into a camp for members of the communist party. After the Junta it was abandoned and now lies derelict.
