Nazi Concentration Camps

In Germany during the 1930's, the Nazis interned political prisoners and opponents of the regime in concentration camps. During the Second World War these expanded in number and eventually held millions of people from occupied countries. Foremost among inmates were Jewish people and Soviet prisoners of war. Several camps were designed from the outset as extermination camps, where millions of people were murdered on an industrial scale.
