What is the largest Island of France?
New Caledonia, located east of Australia is almost twice as large as Corsica. New Caledonia used to be a penal colony. From the 1860s until the end of the transportations in 1897, about 22,000 criminals and political prisoners were sent to New Caledonia, among them many Communards arrested after the failed Paris Commune.
