POW’s Jobs During WWII From the book, Night, it didn’t tell us much what the Jews worked on the concentration camps. Elie only told us two jobs which were his jobs.

Later on after the invasion of Poland, Jews over the age of 12 who were living in the General Government were forced to work under forced labour. Then all non-Germans who were in the General Government were subject to forced labour in 1942.

There was more information saying that later on more prisoners were working on the war
