Auschwitz was a concentration camp in WWII. It was the largest of all the camps, and it was so large that it had to be divided into three sub camps. The largest of the three, Monowitz was the third and final camp. Monowitz was very important to the Germans in their war effort for the factories that were located inside the camp. Originally the camp was supposed to be for manufacturing, But was converted when they needed space to store prisoners. This would turn out to be one of the most controversial decisions of all time.
