It was organized in the dependences of the old seminar of MENDE. It accomodated Spanish Republicans and members of the International Brigades. During the summer 1939, Spanish women remained also there, soon joined by a hundred german women sympathizers of the Nazism, coming from the Parisian prison of the "Petite Roquette".

The camp also sheltered French communist women.
