World War II was a time of devastating and catastrophic events. One of the tragedies that occurred in this time was the Holocaust. It is estimated that over six million people were killed from Holocaust occurrences. The Nazi political party can be accredited with the creation of this horrible event. They were led by the infamous ruler Adolf Hitler. He believed that all Jews of every race were inferior to the rest of the world. In his mind, the only way to make the world better was to eliminate the entire Jewish population. In order to do this, he decided to set up concentration camps. These camps would feed the Jews a miniscule amount of food, humiliate them, and overwork them. One of the most notorious of these camps was known as
Eugenics and Concentration Camps Most people have a common knowledge on the holocaust, and about the horrible things that happened with it, but to what extent?

There are many different types of camps in the world but there are two different types of camps that can be considered the same thing, there is Japanese Internment camps and there is Nazi Concentration camps.

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.
This was such a tragic time in history and we should all be thankful that our world isn 't like this. The Concentration Camps were made because Hitler hated the jews and wanted to kill all and they were kind of brainwashing them to tell them it is a wonderful place to live. When they were making the camps the Nazis would go around just shooting people for no reason. So Hitler and the Nazis captured the majority of the Jews and put them into these camps saying they should be here and that they deserve to died and it is all their fault.
“It all happened so fast. The ghetto. The deportation. The sealed cattle car. The fiery altar upon which the history of our people and the future of mankind were meant to be sacrificed.” Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel had experienced this when he was captured by the Nazi and taken to the camps. Concentration camps were probably the most inferior place in the world. Torture did not begin with the camps though. The fear that the Nazis would come for them would eat the Jews lives’ out. Then, when the Nazi captured the Jews, they had to go through the transportation which was another type torment. The camps would then come last, the final destination where many Jews’ lives would end. During the Holocaust, concentration camps impacted the lives

The first concentration camp in the Nazi system, Dachau, opened in March, 1933. By the end of World War II, the Nazis gave a huge system of more than 40,000 camps that stretched across Europe from the French-Spanish border into the conquered Soviet territories, and as far south as Greece and North Africa. The largest number of prisoners were Jews, but people were arrested and locked in prison for a variety of reasons, including family, cultural characteristics and political association. Prisoners were subjected to unbelievable terrors from the moment they arrived in the camps it was a terrible existence that involved a struggle for survival against a system designed to destroy them.

Did you know that eleven million people died in the holocaust? Six million of those people were Jews. The Jews were captured and taken to concentration camps because the Nazis simply hated them. Concentration camps were made to kill off all of the Jews. They did this because they saw them as a problem to Germany. I am researching about concentration camps.

Shortly before the outbreak of war, SS and police officials incarcerated Jews, Roma, and other victims of ethnic and racial hatred in these camps. To concentrate and monitor the Jewish population as well as to facilitate later deportation of the Jews, the Germans and their collaborators created ghettos, transit camps, and forced-labor camps for Jews during the war years. The German authorities also established numerous forced-labor camps, both in the Greater German Reich and in German occupied territory.
The Jews did not really start being placed in concentration camps until 1934. The reason for this is because that is when the SS got its independence from the SA, which meant the SS could do more of what the Nazis asked them to do(CONCENTRATION). The concentration camps were awful. The prisoners were forced to do a useless and hard task.
Daily Life at Concentration Camps Starving, cold, unclothed, sick, and hard working people were all put in concentration camps and treated horribly. The Jewish workers worked hard all day everyday or else they would get killed.

There were all types of camps that had all kinds of jobs, you were assigned a job and didn 't get to pick a job. The Jews had a very compact schedule, they were busy all day, never any time to waste.
