Leros (III)

'Hotspots' are closed refugee centres established for the reception, identification, and processing of asylum seekers and migrants.

The hotspot in Leros comprises several rows of containers surrounded by barb wire and it can house up to 1,000 people. It is located on the grounds of a former psychiatric hospital that gained a notorious reputation in the 80s for the inhumane treatment of patients.
