Information Provided by Michael D. Bulmash:

Cover from S. Goldschmidt in Rieucros Internment Camp. Rieucros was a French internment camp near Mende in Lozere and was in effect from 1939-1942. With the French increasingly restricting immigration from Fascist countries, fearful of being dragged into war, foreigners were interned in Rieucros. For example, members of the Spanish Republic and International Brigades. After the men were transferred to the camp at Vernet, Rieucros mainly interned women.
