country that had its door open
to refugees. Jehle, when he ar

camp controlled by the Vichy
"Life during the first months
was simply a struggle to survive,'
he said. The mud stood in the
camp a foot deep.
One could not walk around as
he pleased under such conditions.
Sometimes the daily diet consisted
of only 600 calories. Disease and
filth were everywhere.
Two thousand people died dur
ing the first winter.
The camp was controlled by
the Vichy government under
France during the early years.
They ruled under international
rules but often had not the suf
ficient means to do so -effectively.
The camp director was
very often an incompetent indi
vidual who did not know what
was going on inside the camp.
It was worse Jehle remembers
when the Gestapo took over after
the invasion of France. The camp
director was a Gestapo agent or
Nazi collabrator. He ruled with
such force that it was impossible
for people to survive.
During the years of French and
Nazi rule, Jehle said student or
