Concentration camps were originally built as prisons for Adolf Hitler's political opponents, but they soon became the destination for anyone the Nazi regime wanted to get rid of. Prisoners were also sent to work camps, where they performed backbreaking labor, and death camps, where people were slaughtered using gas Chambers and firing squads. Millions of Jews died in the camps, but their stories and those of the survivors live on.
