How were prisoners at Auschwitz treated?

Answer

They were treated like scum, they had to work all day doing pointless things like cleaning batteries. They ate watery soup with different types of bugs in it. They slept in basically cabinet like beds and slept with thousands of other people. Then, they either got poisoned by showers, died of diseases, or died of too much work.

  1. Most were killed as soon as practical after arrival.
  2. Some were selected for work as slave labourers and worked to death.
  3. Some were used for 'medical' experiments.
  4. Some died when the camps were evacuated on foot (death marches) in January 1945.
  5. A few survived.

They were all treated appallingly.
