There was only one Holocaust, but similar types of concentration camps were around in Russia at the time of Stalin's power.

No there was not. Here are the 2 types:Concentration Camps- live, eat, backbreaking labor,etc...Extermination Camps- gas chambers where you would meet your death.

The key disinction is between 'ordinary' concentration camps (such as Dachau or Buchenwald) and extermination camps such as Treblinka and Sobibor. The sole purpose of extermination camps was to kill. Note that Auschwitz and Majdanek combined both kinds of camps.

Concentration and Death Camps

The tortures at the camps was labout, brutal attacks, rape

There were two main types of camps created by the Nazis during the Holocaust, namely concentration camps and extermination camps. The term for concentration camps was borrowed from the British concentration camps during the Second Anglo-Boer War in South Africa. The concentration camps were placed where the enemies of the Nazis were enslaved, starved, tortured and killed. People in the concentration camps were put to work in harsh conditions. This included Jews, Soviet prisoners of wars, Gypsies, Poles, homosexuals, people with disabilities, Jehovah's witnesses, Catholic clegy, Eastern European intellectuals and others like common criminals. Many prisoners died in the concentration camps due to maltreatment, disease, starvation and overwork. The extermination camps is also known as death camps as these camps were only used to systematically kill people, mostly Jews, by gassing them. These camps were different from the concentration camps as new arrivals to these camps were immediately killed and were not put to work first. It included Chelmno, Belzec, Majdanek, Sobibor and Treblinka. Auschwitz-Birkenau was a combination of concentration and extermination camps.

The key distinction was between extermination camps and labour camps ("ordinary" concentration camps).

Concentration Camps Extermination Camps Labour Camps Transit Camps Death Camps.

== == The following are the types of camps that were used in the Holocaust: * "Concentration camps" is the generic term for the prison camps maintained by the Third Reich. * "Labor camps" were those that were maintained for the purpose of exploiting slave labor. * "Extermination camps" were six camps located in Poland where the mass murder of Jews and others took place. Many of the concentration camps were complexes of several camps and some had dual functions. At the Auschwitz complex, for example, most of the genocide took place in a subcamp called Birkenau. There was also a labor camp named Monowitz that was part of the complex where an artificial rubber plant was built. Likewise, Treblinka, another extermination camp, was part of a complex of three camps, two of which were used for slave labor.

There was 5 different types of Camps but here is 2 most common. Concentration Camps Extermination Camps

The Jews were put into gas chambers and were told they were just taking a shower. If they tried to escape from the concentration camps , they would be shot by the guards. They were dehydrated so their body shut down or they starved to death. Also they died of sicknesses because they were out in the cold and in a filthy environment.

There were different types of camps. In ordinary concentration camps the prisoners had to work for the Nazis on insufficient food and were ill treated as a matter of routine. In the extermination camps, such as the Birkenau section of Auschwitz, most of the new arrivals were gassed as soon as practical after their arrival. Some were 'selected' for work and systematically worked to death.

Concentration camps covered at least two types of activities: one for slave labor; one for death

There were different types of concentration camps, and the true purpose of some was not hidden. Please see the related question.

Many different types of people were in the concentration camps that Hitler considered to be 'sub-human'. These people included:JewsRomaSlavsPolesDisabledAlcoholicsHomelessHomosexualsCommunistsJehovah's WitnessessThe holocaust was a horrible event and should never be allowed to happen again!

Within these camps they could 'concentrate' or group specific types of people in one place.

Technically all camps were within the concentration camp system, there were labour camps, transit camps and extermination camps. Concentration camps were generally intended for civillians, initially just for criminals, but gradually more types were included. Extermination camps were established about seven and a half years after the first concentration camps. They were much smaller than the average concentration camps (Auschwitz is an exception as it was both), as they only held enough inmates that were needed to opperate the gas chambers/vans and the cramatoria.

There are a number of types of camps that exist in the English language.One type of camp that the Nazis used were concentration camps.The Nazis also used many other types of camp.Many other countries use and have used concentration camps.There are/were different classifications of camps. The year or the location of a camp does not dictate its classification, its function does.Because large numbers of prisoners were "concentrated" in one location.

Trains were mostly used for transporting troops and slaves to deportation camps. Jeeps were used to get Generals and Commanders around.

they hung shot starved and even gassed them

concentration, interment, prisoner-of-war

1. Concentration camps (punishment and forced labour camps). 2. Extermination camps (for killing only). 3. Transit camps. Some camps combined more than one function.

Too many to list, but below is a link to one of the most notorious Nazi Doctors' during WWII

1) Work camps, where inmates were payed meager salaries for back breaking work. 2) Standard concentration camps where Jews were worked to death. 3) Death camps where the sole purpose was to destroy as many Jews as possible as quickly as possible.
