Internment camps were also created in Algeria, Morocco and Tunisia. This is the case of the CENTRE DE SEJOUR SURVEILLE at BOSSUET established in the fort.

Many Communists arrested in 1939-1940 were transferred there after being in camps in mainland France (in particular NEXON, ST-PAUL-D' EYJEAUX and ST SULPICE-LA-POINTE).

The living conditions were, on the whole, a little better than in the other camps.

The C.S.S. OF BOSSUET was liberated in spring 1943, a few months after the landing of the Allies in North Africa .
