France Spanish Refugees
The daily stream of refugees from Catalonia pours across the frontier into France every day now as soon as the frontier stations are opened at dawn in Le Perthus, Perpignan and other border towns. After being passed through they are transferred to enormous barbed-wire-encircled concentration camps inside the frontier, where they make themselves as comfortable as they can with blankets. As soon as possible they are all being transferred to more elaborate camps further in the interior of France. A view of one of the many concentration camps inside the French border in this instance at Ageles-sur-Mer, near Perpignan, France, on Feb. 8, 1939. The weary and footsore refugees are seen resting after their long trek to the frontier. (AP Photo)
