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.
