Tábor v Letech stál dva kilometry východně od obce Lety. Od 8.8.1940 sloužil jako pracovní tábor, následně od 1.1.1942 byl sběrným táborem a od 2.8.1942 se stal cikánským táborem.

Od samého počátku byl do funkce ředitele - velitele tábora jmenován bezcitný dvaapadesátiletý Josef Janovský - kapitán četnictva. 1943-Ani nemoc, která se šířila velmi rychle, nebyla překážkou k zařazení do osvětimského transportu. V březnu jím odjelo prvních 7 nemocných, ke kterým bylo přiřazeno dalších 13 letských vězňů a největším transportem 4.5.1943 bylo do Auschwitzu transportováno 307 osob. Celkem prošlo branou vyhlazovacího tábora v Osvětimi 420 letských vězňů, z nichž bylo 215 mužů a chlapců a 205 žen a dívek.

The camp in Lety used to stand two kilometres east of the village. Since August 8, 1940 it served as a labour camp, then since January 1, 1942 it was an assembly camp and since August 2, 1942 it became a Gipsy camp.

Right at the beginning a heartless fifty-two year captain of gendarmerie Josef Janovský was appointed the director of the camp.

1943-Not even the disease, which spread very quickly, could stand in a way to inclusion in transport to Oswiecim. In March the first 7 patients were transported to whom another 13 prisoners from Lety were added and with the largest transport which took place on May 4, 1943 another 307 people were moved. Totally there were 420 prisoners from Lety that went through the gate of Oswiecim. 215 from them were men and boys and 205 of women and girls.

Ciao Michal1978

A beautiful landscape, and the peaceful mood is well conveyed! The trees full of life in this green, add life and atmosphere, and they are a fine element in the composition... Rich colours and fine details, all together a pleasant composition!
