French and foreign citizens, who were interned in France or certain forced labour camps (such as Tunisia, Algeria or Morocco) after 16 June 1940, are officially recognized as 'political internees'.

Those who have lost one or both parents in concentration camps during the Second World War are eligible as Orphans of the Shoah (or Orphans of the Holocaust). On our website, they can get information on how to fill out an application for a lifetime pension or other forms of compensation.
