Gates To Hell – Nazi KZ Camps.

KZ Dachau was the first concentration camp established in Nazi Germany – the camp was opened on March 22, 1933.

In the late 1930′s the Nazis killed thousands of handicapped Germans by lethal injection and poisonous gas. After the German invasion of the Soviet Union in June 1941, mobile killing units following in the wake of the German Army began shooting massive numbers of Jews and Gypsies in open fields and ravines on the outskirts of conquered cities and towns.

Eventually the Nazis created a more secluded and organized method of killing. Extermination centers were established in occupied Poland with special apparatus especially designed for mass murder. Giant death machines.

Six such death camps existed: Auschwitz-Birkenau, Belzec, Chelmno, Majdanek, Sobibor, and Treblinka. Large-scale murder by gas and body disposal through cremation were conducted systematically by the Nazis and Adolf Hitler’s SS men ..

Victims were deported to these centers from Western Europe and from the ghettos in Eastern Europe which the Nazis had established. In addition, millions died in the ghettos and concentration camps as a result of forced labor, starvation, exposure, brutality, disease, and execution.


Go to the website and use links for camps and other information.

Originally, the undesirable non-Aryan race were supposed to be sent off to Madagascar, a major island in the Southern Africa. However, the unexpected naval resistance from British Empire (Quite expected from German navy) forced Hitler and his Nazi party to find alternative solution. Until Final Solution was proposed, they were rounded up in small restricted areas where non-Aryan people established their communities. Due to the heavy regulations and racial hatred, flow of goods (both import and export) of these communities were difficult. They were used as cheap labors.

Systematic destruction of “impure” race was introduced when the concentration camps were overflooding. They initially shot the prisoners, but the cost of ammunitions forced German High Commissioner to find alternative methods that would be more effective and cheaper. Gas chamber was one idea, but the production of toxic gas became costly, especially after Allies’ air bombardments. Exhausting themselves out by forced labor was introduced, but regulating and policing these workers became difficult. Especially due to Jewish and Polish resistance, Hitler ordered that different methods to cruelly kill these people was necessary.

The real effective solution was never found. But by the time the war was over, millions of non-Aryan race were wiped out.

Towards the end, the Nazis relied mainly on poison gas
(Zyklon B) as the “most efficient.”
