The memory of the thousands of Holocaust survivors detained in internment camps in Cyprus will be immortalized in the new Cyprus Jewish Museum.

52,000 Holocaust survivors fleeing Europe were prevented from reaching Israel, then British Mandate Palestine, and were instead interned in detention camps in Cyprus.

Although an often forgotten part of history, the conditions were terrible and many died of disease.

Seventy-five years later, as many former detainees are elderly and many have passed on, their memories will be immortalized in the new Cyprus Jewish Museum.
