If you're asking what kind of devices were used to KILL people in the concentration camps (in Germany during WWII)... Gas chambers were a big thing. The Nazis would make the prisoners take off all their clothes and anything that had value. They told them they were going to take showers, so they put them in a huge room, but when the showers turned on, water did not come out. Gas did. Eventually they all died. Another way they used to kill the prisoners was to make them dig wholes in the ground then they would shoot so they would fall straight back into the whole that they dug ... they were basically forced to dig their own graves.

Who invented concentration camps?

The term Concentration camp was first used by the British in the Boer wars. this was very different form the concentration camps used in Nazi Germany. they were not death camps but camps in which the family of Boer rebels were imprisoned so that they could not aid the rebels. However concentration camps have been used before this (only they were not called concentration camps) they were used by the Spanish in the 1860's even American soldiers used similar camps on Cherokee and other native Americans in the 1830's so this type of military tactic has been around for a long time, but the term is British. Evidently, there are no real differences, but rather there are similarities between the English and the German concentration camps.
