Life in Dachau was a bleak one. The prisoners slept on wooden boards furnished with a straw mattress and possibly a blanket (Bernard 12-13). They were fed an insufficient amount of food. Along with the poor conditions in the camp, prisoners were treated to cruel punishments and torture (Byers 23). During the day, the prisoners became forced laborers.
Prisoners from France, Britain, and the US were treated in accordance to the Geneva Convention, which had been signed by those three countries. Western Allied officers were usually not made to work. Other than a few food shortages, these POWs were in the best place to be during the war. However, a small portion of the Jewish Allied POWs were sent to concentration camps and killed. Germany did not apply the same standard of treatment to non-western prisoners, especially many Polish and Soviet POWs who suffered harsh conditions and died in large numbers while in captivity.
The highest amount of people dying a day at the camp was 1,500 people due to not have any blood flowing because they were sitting all the time. Also some people were killed while stepping out of line but that happened at all the camps they were killed because of stepping out of line or mouthing the guards. The Bergen-Belsen Camp has Postwar trials and other camps do not have trails. The bergen belsen camp is one of the best camps in the holocaust time period it had many things that other camps did not. The camp had three different camps in the other camp it was a very complex camp compared to the other camps.
Reichsführer-SS Heinrich Himmler, head of the Schutzstaffel (SS), intended the camp to house 50,000 prisoners of war, who would be interned as forced laborers. Plans called for the expansion of the camp first to house 150,000 and eventually as many as 200,000 inmates.  An initial contingent of 10,000 Soviet prisoners of war arrived at Auschwitz I in October 1941, but by March 1942 only 945 were still alive, and these were transferred to Birkenau, where most of them died from disease or starvation by May.  By this time Hitler had decided to annihilate the Jewish people, so Birkenau was repurposed as a combination labor camp / extermination camp. 
There conditions were very unsanitary. They were fed very little a day and often fed only after a day of starvation. They were often overworked. If they were too slow, a guard would often punish them by whipping them. When they would get transported to a new concentration camp, they would stay in a box car on a train for days or even a week with very little food and water.
Race is one of the themes in this autobiography because they are the primary victims of Nazi’s. They are targeted because they are Jews. He is then sent to a detention camp near Modena which also includes Americans and English prisoners of war. There are about one hundred fifty Jews when Levi arrived.

In 1945 jews and many others types of people were taken from their homes, apartments, and other places and were taken to concentration camps. concentration camps where they kept them to kill, torture, and just to make them feel horrible and even worse.

Did you know that more than 6 million jews were killed in the holocaust yes I am amazed as well by that.
World War two was an awful time for everyone.

In the camps there wasn 't a lot of food or water so people, mostly died of starvation and dehydration. The Germans established 20,000 camps to imprison Jews.In this research paper I will give you information about concentration camps in ww2.

More than 1.1 million prisoners died in the Auschwitz concentration camp. That’s nearly 700,000 more people dead than deaths caused by guns yearly. There were many punishments for the prisoners. The punishment of the Auschwitz prisoners had been so cruel and the living conditions were unbelievable. There were many different types of ethnicities in this concentration camp.
From 1942 to 1945, Jews were deported to the camps from all over Europe, including German- controlled territory as well as those countries allied with Germany. The heaviest deportations took place during the summer and fall of 1942, when more than 300,000 people were deported from the Warsaw ghetto
All together Auschwitz had nearly 1.3 million people walk through the gates and only 200,000 had survived. Aswell as most other concentration camps Auschwitz I had the same three jobs. One incarcerate and enimies of the Nazi regime, two suply support to forced laborers, three serve as eliminaters of small targeted groups whoś fate was determined by an SS officer. The auschwitz concentration camp had a gas chamber and a crematory. For a short period of time they had to build a makeshift gas chamber in the basement of prision block 11 due to the actual gas chamber under going matnence.
