Best Answer - Chosen by Asker:
Auschwitz is the main concentration camp that the Germans used!.

In all, 1!.1 million people died during the four and a half years of Auschwitz's existence; one million of them were Jewish men, women and children!.

Other groups of people who died included Polish political prisoners, Soviet prisoners of war, Gypsy families, homosexuals, people with disabilities and prisoners of conscience or religious faith (including several hundred Jehovah's Witnesses)!.

More people died in Auschwitz than the British and American losses of World War Two combined!.

About 60 million Reichmarks - equivalent to £125m today - was generated for the Nazi state by slave labour at Auschwitz!.

Nazis at Auschwitz offered some non-Jewish female prisoners the option of 'light work'!. As the women soon discovered, 'light work' meant prostitution!.

To lull new arrivals at Treblinka death camp into believing they were only in transit, plants were placed on the railway station and at the entrance to the gas chambers!.

The train ramp was disguised to look like a regular railway station with signs, timetables and even a clock painted on the wall!.

A Star of David was placed above the entrance to the gas chamber and a sign was painted in Hebrew on a purple curtain covering the entrance to the gas chamber that said "This is the Gateway to God!. Righteous men will pass through"!.

Auschwitz-Birkenau became the killing centre where the largest numbers of European Jews were killed during the Holocaust!. After an experimental gassing there in September 1941 of 850 malnourished and ill prisoners, mass murder became a daily routine!. By mid 1942, mass gassing of Jews using Zyklon-B began at Auschwitz, where extermination was conducted on an industrial scale with some estimates running as high as three million persons eventually killed through gassing, starvation, disease, shooting, and burning !.!.!.

9 out of 10 were Jews!. In addition, Gypsies, Soviet POWs, and prisoners of all nationalities died in the gas chambers!. Between May 14 and July 8,1944, 437,402 Hungarian Jews were deported to Auschwitz in 148 trains!. This was probably the largest single mass deportation during the Holocaust!.

Auschwitz-Birkenau, Nazi Germany's largest concentration and extermination camp facility, was located nearby the provincial Polish town of Oshwiecim in Galacia, and was established by order of Reichsfuhrer SS Heinrich Himmler on 27 April 1940!. Www@QuestionHome@Com

In 1940 the German occupiers built the Auschwitz concentration camp by converting the Polish military barracks!. Later, they also built the vast Auschwitz II (Birkenau) camp in the nearby village of Brzezinka!.
It has been estimated that between 1940 and 1945 1!.1 million people, mostly Jews, were killed by the Nazis in the Auschwitz-Birkenau camps!.


Auschwitz was run as a business, with profits going to the SS!. These funds were used after the war to finance new lives and identities for SS war criminals!.Www@QuestionHome@Com
