Concentration Camps
The Beginning
The concentration camps all started in 1933-1945.
The very first concentration camp ever, was made in
January 1933. After that camp…German authorities
started to build camps all over the place and this was
when it started. They named it the camps “concentration
camps” because everybody who was captured…were
physically “concentrated”.
Where
A lot of concentration camps were spread
out through Germany. Most of the camps were
located in the general government in occupied
Germany . It is estimated that 15,000 camps
were established all together!

What took place?
Some of the things that took place in the
concentration camps were the victims were enslaved,
starved, tortured, and killed. Most of them died of
mistreatment, disease, starvation, overwork, or
execution. People usually died in gas chambers! Some
people even died before they reached the camps! There
were many different ways that they the victims could
have died! Sometimes… by either the heat of the
Summer… or the cold of the Winter was the cause of
death!

Fast Facts
There was an estimate of 6,400,000 people killed
in the concentration camps.
 More than half of the victims killed were killed in
gas chambers.
 Some Nazi doctors in the camps performed medical
treatments on the victims to experiment.

Twins
In certain camps…they did gruesome and terrible
experiments on twins because Adolf Hitler was very
interested in them. He wanted to make a master race of
blonde hair, blue eyes, and very tall. He was interested
in them because if there were twins…then he could
make the master race easier and faster! If he could breed
in multiples, then it would take much less time to create
the race. He and the Germans who worked in the camps
performed horrible experiments on them.
Twins continued…
The very person most responsible for these
horrible experiments was by the name of Josef
Mengele. He was the one that decided that if he
were to do experiments on them then it would be
easier to figure out how to create the “master
race”! They performed such things on twins as
using chemicals on their eyes, shots in certain
body parts, and there are many more horrible
grotesque experiments that scientist performed!
Josef Mengele
This is Josef Mengele. He performed his
experiments in
Auschwitz. He influenced scientist all over
the place
that worked in
concentration camps
to perform these certain
experiments.
