The cost of building a Labor Camp was Zero, Nada, Zilch. It was a profit making enterprise and here is how it worked: Joe gets a contract say to make widgets. He contracts with the SS for slave laborers who are skilled widget makers and pays the Nazi's a fixed price for each laborer for each day that he needs them. Joe's Widget Plant take the slaves and works them to death making widgets. He only feeds them enough to keep them productive and if they die, he contracts with the SS for more laborers. The profits made by the SS were enormous and more than adequate to cover the cost of establishing transit, holding and extermination camps. It was a win - win situation.

What was the difference between the ''concentration camps'' and the ''extermination camps?

Technically all camps were within the concentration camp system, there were labour camps, transit camps and extermination camps. Concentration camps were generally intended for civillians, initially just for criminals, but gradually more types were included. Extermination camps were established about seven and a half years after the first concentration camps. They were much smaller than the average concentration camps (Auschwitz is an exception as it was both), as they only held enough inmates that were needed to opperate the gas chambers/vans and the cramatoria.

How did concentration camps lead to the war?

There's a misunderstanding here. Concentration camps did not lead to World War 2. Countries went to war for much more down to earth reasons. In fact, liberating concentration camps didn't figure anywhere in Allied war aims.
