Death camps

Death camps were used to kill the jews or the "unwanted." Between 1941 and 1943 "pure extermination camps were built in six different cities in Poland; Belzec, sobibor, Treblinka, Chelmo, Majdanek, and the most common camp, Auschwitz-Birkenau. There were also Combined Extermination camps, which meant that there was a mix of people from the regular concentration camps and those who were getting put to death.

Regular Concentration camps have many different purposes in which Nazi's intend on working the captives to death, literally. This was one of the most important tasks that the Nazi regime had to fill.

There were many different purposes and off springs of the Concentration camps. There "ordinary" camps, forced labour camps, and work and reformatory camps.

The first concentration camp was Dachau in 1933 and later on during Hitler's reign 1,200 more concentration camps were built.
