Concentration Camps

The term concentration camp refers to a camp in which people are confined. The first concentration camps in Germany were in soon after Hitler's appointment as chancellor in January 1933. The camps soon began to establish all across Germany. Then in 1939 the camps started to expand them to hold more Jews.
