The Nazis horribly neglected, abused, mistreated, and degraded Jews, homosexuals, and many more in concentration camp. The camps, which were designed to make life easier, more efficient, and more pleasant for the Nazis, assisted in the killing of many people in large quantities by forcing them to contribute in dreadful medical experiments, and just killing them of any other way possible. No one knows how many died in the concentration camps, but it is estimated that more than 6 million Jews were murdered at the hands of the Nazis.
Its history proves that the camp demolished thousands of people and left the few survivors with terrifying memories. As a death camp that killed 99% of its residents within the first couple hours, Treblinka should be and known as a powerful, malignant place where countless people were killed. It should be remembered and be as prevalent in today’s society just as Auschwitz is, showing the effect it had on Jewish prisoners, as well as other minorities throughout the 1940’s. If society really studied other camps during the Holocaust and what went on in those camps, it wouldn’t have the perception that Auschwitz was the worst institution just because it was the most populated.
First prisons, Poland political soldiers, were forced to do labor and then it was used for exterminating Jews. What are the origin and consequences of Auschwitz concentration camp on people during the Holocaust? During the Holocaust, Auschwitz was then opened as a death camp, many people were killed, some survived the horrible years of treatment, then the camp was liberated when the Holocaust came to an end. Adolf Hitler, became dictator of Germany with the plan to annihilate the entire Jewish race, opening up Auschwitz as a death camp, then forcing millions out of their homes, organizing them at Auschwitz to prepare for their death. When the Holocaust began and Auschwitz came about the horrible treatment began to millions of people.
Their citizenship was taken away and they were removed from the economic and social life of the gentiles. The most abhorrent type of ghetto was the Destruction ghetto. Destruction ghettos were thoroughly enclosed and lasted from two to six weeks before the Nazis either deported or liquidated the remaining Jews of the ghettos. The Jews were put into these ghettos until the Nazis were ready to transport them to death camps. In October 1939, the Nazis established the first ghetto in Piotrkow Trybunalski, Poland.
Children, visibly pregnant women, and the elderly were often murdered upon arrival to Auschwitz. The Nazis did this because women and children were unable to endure the harsh labor that the Nazis wanted to put the Jews through, so they would inevitably be killed anyways. This is very cruel, not just because the women, children, and elderly were brutally murdered, but because this tore apart families within the camp; people had to live with the fact that their loved ones had been killed by Nazis. If children survived the initial separation, medical experiments were often performed on them by Dr. Josef Mengele, who was the main doctor in the camp, such as being put in pressure chambers, castrated or sterilized, and being frozen to death. This shows that the Nazis clearly didn’t care about how they treated their hostages.
The night became known as Kristallnacht, a German word meaning Crystal Night. In 1939, 300,000 Jews had been eliminated from the German community. Millions more Jews came under German control. Jews in Poland are forced to wear a yellow Star of David on their chests or a blue-and-white Star of David armband. By the end of the war, the Nazis had killed about 6 million Jewish men, women, and children that’s more than two-thirds of the Jews in Europe.
They were worked, starved, punished, and put to death and were a part of cruel experiments. Children who were selected for labor worked in factories or coal mines.

The word “Holocaust”, was originated from the words “Holos” meaning whole, and “kaustos” meaning burned. To Adolf Hitler, Jews were an “inferior” race. After years of Nazi rule, Hitler’s “final solution” came under the cover of world war, with mass killing centers constructed in the concentration camps. Jews, Jehovah's Witnesses, Roma Gypsies, Priests and Pastors, homosexuals, and black children were all victims of the holocaust. Most of the victims left were from other countries.
During the first part of the extermination one and a half million Jews and other civilians were murdered by military groups which rounded them up and shot them. Gradually the emphasis changed to concentration camps, where the prisoners worked to death as slave labourers. Also there was another type of camp called an extermination camp in which the victims were murdered in gas chambers. The most famous of these camps was Auschwitz, which was a combination of both types of camp – concentration and extermination in one place. Approximately one million and three hundred thousand people perished
Forced labor for Heinkel aircraft works. 30-35,000 total deaths.

Most of them Jewish women, children and old men. Crematorium III: Was used in similar fashion from June 25th 1943 to November 27th ,1944, killing about 350,000 victims.
