A Day in the Camps

Luke Smith -5

What it was like

The day started at around five in the morning,with roll call which most days would take more than two hours.After roll call the inmates were sent to do grueling jobs. Some worked in quarrys carrying huge holders up hills. Others dug mass Graves that they may soon be put into. Some might have been lucky enough to be sent to work in factors making things for the Nazi war effort.

what they ate

Most of what the people in concentration ate was barely enough to keep them alive. There meals consisted of very weak watery soup and a chunk of bread. Some night they might not have gotten breakfast or dinner. In many camps the guard dogs ate better than the prisoners.
