Throughout Europe, there were more than 2,000 concentration camps: slave labor camps, transit camps and death camps. People died in every camp from disease, starvation, exhaustion and murder. However, only 6 camps were designated as “death” or “extermination” camps: all 6 were located in Poland and were built with the specific design of large-scale gas chambers. These camps were Auschwitz, Belzec, Chelmno, Majdanek, Sobibor and Treblinka.
