45,000 prisoners. From those 45,000 men, 12,920 died as a result of poor sanitation, diseases, overcrowding, and malnutrition; and were buried in the cemetery located just outside the prison walls (unknown, 28). Around the perimeter of the prison 90-foot walls and there were two entrances on the west side. Inside the camp, a short distance from the wall, was a “deadline,” which prisoners were forbidden to cross. If a prisoner were to cross the deadline, Captain Wirz had them shot.
The early men were German criminals who were the worst people Germans could find. On the page entitled “Panorama of the Camps at Birkenau,” find these two topics and record key information: Krematoria II and III: Krematoria II and III were the biggest Krematoria in the Nazi system. People were gassed and burned there. The people ashes were dumped in pits or in the Sola River.
Westerbork What is Westerbork.westerbork is a concentration camp. Westerbork was built on October 1939.The camp was built for exterminate camp for Jews. A gas chamber according to the Germans was meant to kill those who were unworthy of life. Hitler was the creator of the holocaust.
How many Jews where in the camp, how many where killed? Furthermore,
The facilities at these camps like heat, washrooms, and toilets were all very scarce. When present, these facilities were often poorly managed and in very inhumane conditions. The prisoners at these camps were almost always of Jewish descent except for the majority of war-related prisoners and were kept in ordinary prison cells. Auschwitz was the name of a very well-known camp in a Nazi-controlled part of Poland during The Holocaust. In Auschwitz, they used various forms of torture including gas chambers, crematoriums, various beatings, and individual torture.
The victims traveled by railway in cattle trucks. The victims kept in these wagons were kept in very poor conditions. When the prisoners were brought to the camp, they were not told what the camp actually was. They were told that they had arrived at a transit camp. The prisoners had to undress for disinfection and showering before entering the main camp.
They were put into camps in the middle of nowhere. Their so-called “house” was poorly built, they had very thin walls, the house always leaked whenever it rained, they had to make their own furniture, the food wasn’t very good, and there was a fence keeping them in. Many people died trying to get out of the camps. Many innocent people were taken into these camps, a lot were even arrested.
The very first concentration camp was set up in Dachau, Germany in 1933. Concentration camps kept opening up and being used all the way through to the end of World War II in 1945. As so many camps opened their had to be someone to build them for the prisoners of war, and believe it or not it was the prisoners themselves who had to build their own soon to be torture and sleeping chambers. In the Holocaust up to 6 million Jewish citizens died in either concentration camps or on the street. In the concentration camps people were either killed by being shot, gassed with poisonous gasses, tortured, or by catching a deathly disease or virus but prier to this they had to live in poor, poor living conditions.
Weber stated that “most of the 1.3 million people died in 1941” (331-332) all because of the Nazis. The Nazis killed about 1.25 of the people in the camps. They would keep the men and would take the old, women and children and put them in the gas chamber and then do that to the week and ill, I bet they kept all of the little boys also to do slave work. After the Holocaust was over the prisoners that survived were set free to go find their families to reunite. All of Nazis that were left got either killed or hung.
The prisoners, which consisted of Mainly Jew’s, but also homosexuals, gypsies, and Jehovah Witnesses were all given a number. The number was your name in these camps. You were no longer identified as a person but as just another object with a serial number. Often the Nazi’s would do selections, where they would pick apart the healthy from the weak. If you passed the selection you were to go back to what you had been doing in the camp.
After being unloaded from the cattle trucks, women were separated from their husbands but stayed with their children. Following registration, all prisoners had their heads shaved. Prisoners were then taken to the showers and given a striped uniform to put on when exiting the water. Their own clothes were taken away from them,
More than three million Jews were killed in concentration camps during World War Two. The concentration camps were extremely brutal and people who experienced them were treated like animals. When Jewish people were thrown into concentration camps, not only had they been stripped of their basic rights, but they had been stripped of their lives as well. Everyday they would witness fellow jews dying or being killed. Anyone who ever lived in a concentration camp knew that they could have died any day.
The shoes were supplied and they were wooden clogs, but the catch was no socks were provided. Because no socks were worn their feet would get blisters and sore all the time. The striped pajamas got washed only every six weeks usually and you worked and slept in the same clothes so they got very dirty. The Nazi’s would kill the Jews if they did not do what the Nazi’s said, or they did not like the
Jews were moved to the camps to either work or be killed (Veil 113). The Nazis also wanted to keep the children, but only twins because the Nazi scientist wanted to experiment on them (Veil 115). The Nazis had a plan called the System of Death where they told all the Jews that they were going to take showers and clean off and the Nazis took them to a medium sized room where they all stripped down getting ready for showers. The Nazis would then put some Zyklon B pellets into the chamber where it reacted with the oxygen in the air and turned into chlorine gas and all the Jews were dead in minutes. They then would force some other Jews to carry the bodies to the crematorium where the bodies would be
