North Africa POW Camp (Vichy) 5 Francs

North Africa 5F

The Vichy government of France set up labor camps in North Africa for POWs and people that were anti-Vichy and anti-Nazi and possibly some Jews.  The camps were located in Algeria, Tunisia, Morocco, and the Western Sahara.  Four denominations were issued 5, 10, 50, and 100 francs.  The 50 and 100 francs are extremely rare with only a few surviving.
