concentration camps in eastern europe

The camps in the eastern of Europe were mainly build to collect the people from the closed ghettos. The regimes in these camps were very hard, and many people were brought to extermination camps after a period of time. Also hybrid camps existed in which the prisoners were to work till they were no longer fit, after which they were killed. This process was called extermination through labor. Most labor was to be done in the benefit of the war industry. These camps hand the principle of working till your death. Especially the harsh winter period were a heavy burden on the prisoners. Most prisoners in these camps did not live longer than four months.
