THE NAZI CONCENTRATION CAMP
Located thirty-seven miles west of Krakow, Auschwitz was the camp where Jewish people were killed and
worked. This camp , out of all the rest tortured the most people. At the camp there was a place called the
"Black Wall," this was where the people were executed . In March of 1941, there was another camp that
started to be built. This second camp was called Auschwitz II, or Birkinau. It was located 1.9 miles away
from Auschwitz I. People that were chosen to come to these camps were expelled from their homes. Their
houses were destroyed for the purpose of building Birkinau. Birkinau had nine sub-units. They were
separated from each other by electrically charged fences that lines their borders. In August 1942, the
womens’ section at Auscwitz I was moved to Birkinau. Nine hundred and ninety-nine women from
Ravensbruck camp and other women from different camps joined them also. Birkinau now had over 6,000
women prisoners being held. In the town Monowitz, another camp w!
as being built. This camp was called Auschwitz III, or Buna-Monowitz. Other camps that were located
close to Monowitz were moved to Buna-Monowitz. The population of Birknau was the most densly
populated out of all the camps. It also had the most cruel and bad conditions of all the camps in the
complex. The prisoners at Birkinau mostly consisted of Jews, Poles , and Germans. There were a number
of Gypsy and Czech Jew family camps located at Birkinau for a period of time also. In Birkinau, the gas
chambers and the oven, where the bodies were burned operated at Auschwitz I. Birkinau and all the other
sub-camps were mostly forced labor camps. The most recognized of the labor camps are, Budy,
Czechowitz, Glenwitz, Rajsko, and Furstenarube. The prisoners here were worked to the point of death.
Trains transported people to the camps, and violently forced them off the train. All of the people’s property
was left on the train also. They prisoners were sent into two different!
lines, one for women and the other for men. The lines moved into the place were a procedure called
‘Selection’ took place. The ones who could work were not killed at this time, but the women, children, and
others that couldn’t work were gassed. The prisoners that were to work, had their clothes taken, heads
shaved, got sterilized, and were given black and white striped clothes to wear. In the forced labor camps,
the average life time was only a few months. Some of the prisoners that couldn’t react or move became
what was known as Muselmann. A dreaded part of camps was the Appeal, or roll call. In this, prisoners
were sent out into the cold night after a hard day of work, and lined up. Anyone that fell to the ground was
shot or gassed. One more of all the bad work chores was the Sonderkommando. Dong this meant that you
burned the bodies of the dead prisoners in the creamatoria. Tattoos were given to the prisoners on their
right arm as an easier way of registration. !
Not all of the earlier prisoners had this tattoo, but the regiterd number of prisoners was 405,000. The daily
routine in the complex differed in each camp, but the basic routine was the same. They: woke at dawn,
cleaned their areas, morning roll call was taken, they walked to the work site, worked for long hours, had to
wait in lines for food, then walked bback to their bunks, block inspection was done, and then evening roll
call was taken. There were also people who got picked for medical experiments. The best known docter at
Auschwitz was Josef Mengele. His experiments were mostly done on twins and dwarfs. He did lots of
things that had to do with seeing how ling it would take a person to die if you do this or that. He also did
experiments that had to do with cutting off body parts, and reattaaching them to different parts of the body.
By January 20th, 1944, the population of the Aushwitz complex had reached 80,839. That number rose up
and up as the monthes past an!
