Description

Front: Red 'Cyprus' postage stamp in top right corner, handwritten address. Back: Address handwritten on top flap.

Information Provided by Michael D. Bulmash: The flood of Jewish refugees from post-war Europe and displaced persons camps attempting to immigrate to Mandatory Palestine, compelled the British- acceding both to Arab demands and the terms of the 1939 White Paper-to block immigration beyond the specified quota. The refugees unsuccessful in running the blockade were sent to detention centers on Cyprus, Athlit or Mauritius. This cover comes from Cyprus Camp 66 Staff addressed to Palestine.
