Concentration camps are not well thought of, with some reason. Perhaps the first of them were used in America during their civil war. They were also used in South Africa during the Boer War. The Nazi versions were nasty and came in for extremely bad publicity from their alleged victims. They, that is the Jews used The Holocaust« story to very good effect; making billions thereby. The same people who were so eager to abuse the Germans tread much more lightly on the Gulag, the camps run in the USSR but then they were running them. Then they have their very own camps in Palestine, the Stolen Land that they call Israel. Being Jews they use the truth when it suits them. At other times forget it. Find the truth at 200 Years Together written by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn; it was in Russian of course. Jews refused to publish. Now they are being bypassed.
Concentration Camps In America
These are the concentration camps set up waiting to go when their wonderful president decides he is going to make it into a police state for real. GITMO is the one we know about but that is only for foreigners. Obama said he was going to shut GITMO and stop Torture. He lied yet again.
Concentration Camps In Israel
There are five of them being expanded to hold 25 thousand blacks. This includes Saharonim in the Negev Desert. It is run by the Israel Prison Service.
American Death Camps In Germany
This might have been better as Jewish Death Camps because they were set up by Eisenhower and the Jew that brought us the Morgenthau Plan.
British Death Camps In Germany
Britain's secret torture centre......
Despite the six years of bitter fighting which lay behind him, James Morgan-Jones, a major in the Royal Artillery, could not have been more specific about the spectacle in front of him. "It was," he reported, "one of the most disgusting sights of my life."
Curled up on a bed in a hospital in Rotenburg, near Bremen, was a cadaverous shadow of a human being. "The man literally had no flesh on him, his state of emaciation was incredible," wrote Morgan-Jones. This man had weighed a little over six stones (38kg) on admission five weeks earlier, and "was still a figure which may well have been one of the Belsen inmates"...........
An authoritarian and a xenophobe with a legendary temper, Stephens boasted that interrogators who could "break" a man were born, and not made. Of the 20 interrogators ordered to break the inmates of Bad Nenndorf, 12 were British, a combination of officers from the three services and civilian linguists. The remaining eight included a Pole and a Dutchman, but were mostly German Jewish refugees who had enlisted on the outbreak of war, and who, Inspector Hayward suggested, "might not be expected to be wholly impartial".
The fact that Jews made better torturers than the Gestapo is unsurprising. The fact that Brits ran it is depressing. This is assuming that The Grauniad and Longford got it right. Their article is in the Guardian
Concentration Camps In Poland
Yes, there were. After the war they were run by an evil thug, a Jew called Solomon Morel
Concentration Camps in The USSR
The Gulag was the system of Concentration Camps run by the Soviet Union. They do not quite make Auschwitz look like a fun place to be but they were much nastier. The Soviets managed to beat the alleged 6 million claimed by the Jews running the Holocaust« Racket. They did far better with their 40 million murders. Spartacus goes easy on them but Spartacus is run by communists. The pictures are out there - see Gulag In Pictures
Concentration Camps In South Africa
One early use of concentration camps was by the British government in South Africa during the Boer War. It was not nice. There was a death toll to prove it. Cornelis Broeksma talked about it. Cornelis Broeksma was shot for his pains. http://www.angloboer.com/ tells us about Lord Kitchener, a ruthless swine it seems.
ANC Prison Camp
When blacks turn nasty they turn very nasty. Their concentration camp, Quadro was run on scientific lines combining the nastiness of Russian operations with South African style. Is this all public? Not very. The media are selling the idea that Nelson Mandela is a living saint. Quadro does not fit their story.
One of the commandants of Auschwitz concentration camp, Rudolf H÷▀, was captured, tried, signed a confession, testified at Nuremburg and hanged. His statement was written in English, a language he did not understand. It says some 3 million were killed there.
Was run by the Germans & captured by the British. Here Mark Weber of the Institute for Historical Review tells all. The Wikipedia chooses to allege that Mr. Weber is a Holocaust« denier. I choose to allege that I do not believe the Wiki. The piece is linked by Paul Eisen, a Jew who does call himself a Holocaust« denier. The Brits who were there in the aftermath were not amused by what they saw.
PS One was Richard Dimbleby of the BBC. A man who went through a lot including D Day, called Swordman says that people believed him where they wouldn't others. Hear for yourself; it's at http://www.bbc.co.uk/archive/holocaust/5115.shtml
Is a bit north of Weimar in eastern Germany. The camp was seriously nasty. Some guards were enthusiastic sadists. F. F. E. Yeo-Thomas passed that way. His book, The White Rabbit [ his nom de guerre ] gives the nasty details at page 189 onwards. His testimony was very helpful in getting four perpetrators hanged. Jews were not treated as well.
PS There was a camp band as well as a brothel, costing 2 Marks a time. It was, notwithstanding a place of evil. It looks it to this day.
Is north of Munich in the American zone.
It was not a fun place to be. Some 78,000 deaths prove that but they are nothing like as bad as the 1.7 million claimed by the Soviets or the 1.7 million achieved by Eisenhower.
Oranienburg Concentration Camp
became Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp then NKVD Special Camp Nr. 7, which was renamed Special Camp No. 1.
Oranienburg 16 dead
Sachsenhausen circa 30,000 dead
NKVD 12,000 plus dead.
Sachsenhausen was the head office of the Nazi concentration camp organisation.
There is a grim truth here. Work does make free - through the peace of the grave.
List Of Concentration Camps
It may well be complete. It is certainly long at well over 3,000. It has all that I know of. The Wikipedia's list is much shorter - see List of concentration camps of Nazi Germany.
Another place not to be. Too many were.
An Englishman quotes a source. Swordman got about. He was there on the Day, on D Day, on Sword Beach. Whence the pseudonym:-
I searched through my "stuff" and found the original document of army medical staff that entered the camp.
Lest We Forget.
This is an exact copy of an original report by the Medical Services attending at Belsen concentration camp. Given me by Alan Westerman. nothing has been added or taken away. The original document was printed on thin war time paper, and is very old and worn. This is the original report, verbatim.
Belsen Concentration Camp
Visited 22 Apr 45, 6 days after its capture by Second Army.
I was accompanied on my tour of inspection by RAMC officers who were engaged on relief work in the camp, and this constituted my authority for the few statements in this report which I cannot claim were the results of my own observations.
The camp contained 60,000 political prisoners, and this population consisted of men, women and children. They were of various nationalities; Russian, Polish, Dutch, French and to a small extent, German. Jews were in the majority, all were accommodated in huts.
It is obvious that the Germans did not intend that any of the prisoners should leave the camp alive, and the method of destruction which was chosen was death by very slow torture, i.e. By starvation. The rations given to the prisoners consisted of one cup of Swede soup a day, and one loaf of black bread for every twelve persons, per week. In addition to this, the Germans ensured that by the deliberate withholding of adequate sanitation, diseases such as dysentery, typhoid, typhus and tuberculosis, should become seriously prevalent, and in this latter object they were highly successful.
When they realised some weeks ago that the camp would be captured, the Germans ordered that no further burials would take place, and so there were found in the camp, lying singly, or in large or small heaps, no fewer than 18,000 corpses which had accumulated at the rate of 500 per day.
The first thing which I saw was the washing of women patients who had been brought to the camp by ambulance car to the German barracks adjoining the camp. It was a pitiful sight. The washing was done by German nurses who had been brought from elsewhere. The prisoners bodies were completely without fat, and muscle was negligible. Bones were on the point of breaking the skin, which in all cases was affected with bed sores, excoriations and disease. These women were completely helpless and screamed with pain as the nurses moved them.
It was almost impossible to assess the age of these women. Their hair had been cropped or cut very short, and they seemed little else but skeletons, clothed in skin. Their shrunken bodies, their shorn heads and the evidence of past and present suffering, made them all appear to be old. Their screams seemed to exhaust them. The contrast between them and the sleek and healthy German nurses who attended them, will not be easily forgotten. So light were these women that two were easily carried on one stretcher and there was still plenty of room. I visited the ward where the women were taken after being washed. The English Nursing Sister in charge spoke of the severe shock, which took 12 hours to show signs of abatement, in those patients who were expected to live. Here they were at least clean, and if they were to die, they would not die in filth.
An adequate description of the camp is difficult. It covers many acres and strewn through out the camp were naked, or semi-naked corpses. Sometimes singly, sometimes in heaps of a dozen, or forty or fifty. These mounds of bodies appeared to occasion no concern on the part of the prisoners; the sight had become to familiar. All these people had died by starvation, by preventable disease or both.
There was a huge pit 100yds long and 40yds wide, almost full of corpses, still unburied. I cannot give the depth of this pit, but there appeared to be about 100 corpses therein. It is not known how many hundred lay underneath those I saw.
Latrines, if they existed at all, were primitive, and prisoners of both sexes were seen defecating anywhere and everywhere. I visited a hut full of women. They were lying in bunks, two or three lying in one bunk intended for one person. Some could smile and talk, others lay there moaning or silent. Two or three were defecating into tins in the hut. Most of the women were too weak to leave their bunks, with the obvious results. The stench in the room was ghastly. None of the prisoners had had the opportunity or the strength to wash for weeks. Almost all showed the flush and bright eyes of fever.
Another hut contained some women who were even more ill and with them were the dead and dying. All were accommodated on mattresses, one inch thick. Those who were conscious moaned with pain or weakness. One of them held her hand for my attention. A finger was swollen to nearly its double size with a whitlow, and she begged me to help her. Her agony must have been intense and her condition was such that the simplest surgery could have prevented it. This woman had on her right side a corpse and on her left, one who was unconscious and on the point of dying. When I left this hut I asked to see the Hospital which the Germans provided for their sick women prisoners. I was told that this last hut was the hospital. It had less right to the title of hospital than anything I have ever seen.
In contrast to the prisoners who had been in the camp for months, or even years, there were those who had been fairly recently admitted. They were thin but they could walk and it was appalling to consider that the latter would inevitably would have become as the former, had the camp not been captured.
I was told that I had not seen the camp at its worst and that already there was an improvement. Although very many cases, including those suffering from Typhus, had been, and were being rescued from the camp by RAMC personnel, it was quite certain that many so rescued were beyond hope of recovery. I do not know the total deaths in the camp, but I do know that there are still hundreds of men and women yet to die. Solely as a result of their being prisoners in BELSEN.

More And Better Details
A friend's father was RAMC liberating Belsen. and he told me of a near mutiny when the squaddies were told to bury the dead.
It seems there was a parade where the brass were basically told, " WE will take our chances with the Germans, but we are not doing this."
That was when bulldozers were bought in to put the bodies into mass graves. About 26.5 mins into the film,
If I remember, one of the last scenes in "Night and the Fog" after teh Nacht und Nebel decree.
