Montreuil-Bellay in the Loire, which operated from November 1941 to January 1945, was the largest internment camp for Roma and Sinti in France, with 3,000 inmates. It was neither a concentration camp, nor a deportation camp nor a labour camp. None of the prisoners were sent to extermination camps, but more than a hundred died during their years of detention. There were more than forty such camps in France.
