There were many causes of death in concentration camps. When they first entered a camp some were shot automatically. Of course there were the terrible torture devices ( gas chambers etc.) There were also many many diseases that spread around. ( Example: typhus, which Anne Frank died from) due to the terrible conditions and uncleanliness it was easier to spread. Starvation and exhaustion were other causes.

The death camps basically speak for themselves. Jews who go to the Death Camps die a lot quicker than those who suffer at the regular Concentration Camps.
