== == 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.
