EuroNews has recently visited us to understand how our scientific and technological approach has helped to develop a tablet application that uses geo-localisation together with virtual and augmented reality to recreate in 3D the Bergen Belsen concentration camp.  The same concept and technology will be used to reconstruct other concentration camps that were build by the Nazi Germany throughout the territories it controlled.
