Stateless Jewish refugees at a tent camp between Czechoslovakia and Hungary

Stateless Jewish refugees at the Mischdorf tent camp along the Slovak-Hungarian border, following the First Vienna Award which gave a sector of southern Slovakia to Hungary.  Local Jews were accused of supporting the Hungarian claim, were driven across the border, then back again, then were forced to  live for weeks in an open field. November 1938.
