Concentration Camps

List the 3 Harshest Concentration Camps

There were 3 main harsh camps. Each of these 3 camps consisted of a barbed wire and gas chambers. These 3 camps were Auschwitz, Majdanek, and Belzec.
The Germans thought that Belzec was one of the most modern camps because it had a car with a built in gas chamber that would keep prisoners inside it, turn on the gas chamber fumes on , and then dump the dead bodies in the forest.

Describe the 1st Concentration Camp Ever Built

"DACHAU, the first concentration camp the Nazis built, was liberated by the US Army on April 29, 1945.

Now evidence is emerging from Melbourne that might be a game-changer."
