On the outskirts of Thessaloniki, in an industrial area, the camp Softex is located. In the middle of the area there is an unfinished building which has fallen into ruins surrounded by a spacious area covered with gravel next to an large depot. The camp is separated into three parts: Tents are in the depot and in two other areas next to it.
The different parts are separated by wire mesh fence, which is armed with NATO-type barbed wire. The complete area is surrounded by a fence and the only gate is guarded by the Greek military. Their building vehicles – painted in camouflage color – are are placed around the unfinished building in the middle.
