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.

No.Concentration camps were large camps where Jews, Gypsies, homosexuals, Slavs, and political prisoners were held.

For example, Stutthof had such a gas chamber and an estimated 1,100 prisoners were killed there.

What is the difference between the Holocaust and prisoners of war?

Prisoners of war were combatants, the victims of the Holocaust were not, the lines blur when talking about Soviet prisoners of war as they were treated (almost) as badly as the victims of the Holocaust. To amplify somewhat: If an American soldier was a German prisoner of war - and the Germans were not known for great hospitality when it came to their American prisoners of war - they still had a 95 to 98% chance of surviving POW camp. A concentration camp inmate had, at best, a 10-12% chance of surviving. In Japanese prisoner of war camps, it was a different story. In the worst camps, 70% of American troops imprisoned by the Japanese died.

What proportion of the of the population of japanese-americans died in us concentration camps?

Zero. There was no policy or desire to kill the Japanese-Americans. I'm sure there were some deaths due to natural causes, which it could be argued were attributable to camp conditions or to the stress of being uprooted, but it might just as easily be argued that those people would have died anyway if they were still at home. The camps for the Japanese-Americans were nothing like the camps the Japanese ran for prisoners of war or interned civilians who fell into their hands, in which tens of thousands died, and bore no resemblance to the German death camps. Calling them "concentration camps" became fashionable during the Vietnam era, by those with an anti-government bias, because it carries the sinister implication that they operated on the same plan as the German death camps. Nothing could be farther from the truth.

Did the prisoners in those concentration camps starve to death because the allies cut off the food supply to Germany?

No..... No..... The people who died in the concentration camps died because it was the intention of the Nazis that the people who were sent to the concentration camps were to die. They starved because those that imprisoned them did not feed them.
