Camp on Szentendre Island #hungary

H-SIGers,

I should be most grateful if anyone could suggest a possible source of
one or more images of a pre-war summer camp site for young people,
situated near the villages of Horåny and Szigetmonostor on Szentendre
Island in the Danube, north of Budapest.

Two of my aunts were taken >from the Budapest ghetto, marched to the
river, taken to the island by barge and forced to dig ditches,
ostensibly to disrupt the progress of Russian tanks. It was clear from
the small size of the bunks in the wooden barrack blocks in which they
were housed that the buildings had previously been used for children
and I should like to include a photograph in a family history that is
nearing completion.
