About 230 Sinti and Roma were held in a small detention camp in Maxglan/Leopoldskron-Moos, a suburb of Salzburg. After 1939, when life as a traveller was made illegal, the families could only leave the camp to go to work. Later they were only allowed out under supervision as slave labour. In April 1943, 160 Sinti were deported from Maxglan to Auschwitz, including the 17 children born in the camp.
