Camp Aumak is set for a small town in the northeast of the country, a country where there has been renewed anti-Semitism after the deaths of hundreds of Jews in the camp.
The camp is being built by a group of young people with connections to the right-wing party, the Party of Islam (PKI), and will be run by an organisation called the Camp Aom.
The site, which will be open to the public, will house a new memorial, memorial wall, a new crematorium, a camp chapel and a museum dedicated to the Holocaust survivors of the camp, according to a statement by the camp’s director, Ali Aqil.
The organisation plans to open the camp in early 2019.
The location of Camp Aums is unknown, but the party has previously said it was to be built in Dhaka.
The PKI has been criticised for failing to act in the wake of the atrocities committed during the Holocaust.
The group is notorious for its anti-Semitic propaganda and has often been accused of fuelling the anti-Israel protests that erupted in Bangladesh during the summer.
In 2015, the party’s leader, Khaleda Ziauddin, resigned amid accusations that the group was behind the arson attacks on the Baitul Islam Mosque in Dhana, the headquarters of the Muslim Brotherhood.
The party was accused of “tackling a wave of anti-Islamism”.
In 2017, the leader of the party, Sheikh Hasina, was forced to resign after the party was implicated in a massive arson attack on a mosque in Bangladesh.
In 2017 and 2018, the PKI also staged a campaign of terror in the country targeting Muslims, calling for a “revolution” and an “uprising”.
In March 2018, PKI leader Syed Shahidul Haq was assassinated in the capital, Dhaka, and several PKI leaders were arrested.
Haq had called for the assassination of his political opponents, including a member of parliament, after the killing of another member of the parliament.
In 2018, a senior leader of a right-leaning party, Muhammad Zakir, was killed after he was gunned down by a right wing group, the Jamaat-e-Islami.
Zakir had been accused by the group of plotting to topple the government.
A new anti-racism camp in Bangladesh has been proposed, after months of controversy about the country’s response to the 2016 murder of a student, Asaduzzaman Ali, by a mob in the northern city of Mardan.
Ali was shot dead in Mardani, in the northwestern state of Baluchistan, after a dispute over the price of a cup of coffee.
The student had reportedly been trying to pay a taxi driver for the ride home after the altercation in the city centre, and was later found shot to death in his car.
In 2016, police released a video in which they showed the killing, but in a statement the police said they had found no evidence that Ali had been involved in the altercation.
