The Jews from Germany, Austria, Czechoslovakia, in 1940, had fled from the Nazis, escaping to Palestine. Upon arrival, the British, in order to end illegal immigration, deported the Jews  to the island of Mauritius (Maurice), a British colony in the Indian Ocean, Where they spent the duration of the war in a detainment camp. 

Of the almost 1,600 Jews, there were 800 from Vienna, the remnants of the Danzig (Gdansk) Jewish community, and others from Czechoslovakia. ("The Virtual Jewish World"   http://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org/jsource/vjw/Mauritius.html )
