Concentration Camps

By: Chrisann R. and Anna O.

List the 3 Harshest Concentration Camps

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

Tell Me How the Prisoners were Treated in the Camps

The Jews at these camps were never told what would happen to them. When new prisoners arrived, they were told they would be given a shower, and were herded into a special chamber. Then poisonous gas was released instead of water.
