What are two types of camps Hitler created?
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.
