The Hard Times
Concentration camps was were the germans would send the jews. Were they would go from sleeping in warm comfortable beds to sleeping on hard cots and if you wanted a pillow you would have to use your eating bowl to rest your head on. For breakfast instead of having some bacon and eggs like we usally do now they would get a very small peace of bread and some black bitter coffee and if there lucky some flavorless soup. After they would eat they would have to go to work some would work in the crematoria some would work in the kitchen some would clean the cots there were many jobs. After many days they would be thinner and thinner and and more agresive and hateful. It soon got so bad that relatives would kill each other for there own survival. The people that did survive these harsh conditions they were concidered to be very lucky.
