The murdering ended (in most cases) when the camps were liberated by the Allies. The actual dates varied from camp to camp, and in some cases as the Allies approached some of the prisoners were taken on death marches. In some parts of Poland, the local (Polish) population continued to murder Jews for some months after the war!
