I was so lucky to be part of the 50th reunion in Maurius of the few survivors who could travel, their families and those who were part of the island history during that period as I happened to be working there at the time (around 1997/8). What stunned me is that I grew up in South Africa, which had a strong Jewish community yet, because of th German sympathizers in South Africa, not much was said or known except by a select.few. Even thirty plus years after their release, during which many died of disease although spared by the gas chambers in Europe, most South African Jews are unaware of this story and what happened right on our doorstep. Thank God for the Mauritian people whose hospitality is superb, and to those who took care of, cared for and sympathized with the Jewish exiles until after the war. Today Mauritius cares for the graves and continues the memory of those who were interned there in less than desirable conditions.
