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.
