Concentration Camps

Implemented prior to World War II, first as prison camps that detained political opponents of the Nazis, the concentration camps were expanded later to imprison Jews and other minorities and perceived enemies of the state. Several of these camps were involved in the Final Solution, housing gas chambers in which millions of prisoners were murdered, and crematoria in which the bodies were burned. Among the most infamous of the concentration camps were Auschwitz, Dachau, Buchenwald, Sobibor, Mauthausen, and Ravensbrück. After World War II, many Nazis and their accomplices were tried for crimes against humanity for their administration of the concentration camps in which millions died and others were imprisoned, used as forced labor, beaten, and systematically starved.
