[verso]: “Water Tap at Cyprus Detention Camp. Jewish Immigrants at Caraolos Internment Camp On the Island of Cyprus in the Mediterranean Sea, gather at a water tap in the camp. The camp accommodates half of the 24,000 Jewish Immigrants who have been detained by the British after trying to reach Palestine without Visas. The camp, one of three on Cyprus, is dotted with tents and Quonset huts. The huts are communal kitchens. Hospital care for internees may be obtained in the British military hospital in Famagusta. Refugee doctors and nurses operate the camp infirmary and laboratory. Most of the Caraolos internees are from eastern Europe. They have their own camp director, and daily conferences are held with the British authorities to discuss camp problems.”
