Concentration Camp Life
The Final Solution: By Sean Gilmartin
Routines in camps
The Jews had to go through something called the Appel, every morning and evening they would all be forced to stand still and be exposed to the elements of cold, rain, and snow. it was horrific for them to endure. The camp routine was composed of a long list of orders, usually given to all but sometimes aimed at certain individual prisoners. The daily routine was an early wakeup, arranging the bed’s straw, the lineup, marching to labor, forced labor, the waiting period for the meager daily meal, usually consisting of a watery vegetable soup and half a piece of bread which was insufficient for people working at hard labor, the return to the camp, and another lineup, before retiring to the barracks. They would be consistently beaten for absolutely doing nothing harmless. If they asked for more soup for example they got beat. It was a terrible life to live being inside the concentration camps.
