Compare and contrast prison camps and concentration camps during World War 2?

In the Pacific theater, the Japanese military outlook provided no mercy for Allied soldiers that surrendered. The Japanese believed in fighting to the death. Because of this, Japanese prison camps were essentially concentration camps. Allied prisoners died in the thousands from disease, overwork, and malnourishment. However in Europe, they were distinct. Concentration camps housed those deemed unfit, or in some way non-Aryan. People were put there not because they were soldiers, but because they were civilians. Allied prisoners of war in Europe generally received better treatment, and were not put to death on the scale of those in concentration camps.
