Concentration Camps during WWII
What is a concentration camp?
A concentration camp is a prison-like place created to confine selected groups of people, usually for political reasons. Men, women and children are all confined in the camp. Concentration camps usually consist of barracks, huts, or tents, surrounded by watchtowers, and barbed-wire fences. Other names for concentration camps are corrective labor camps, relocation centers, and reception centers. The Nazis established concentration camps in Germany almost immediately after gaining power on January 30, 1933.
