Men and women were kept in opposite parts of the camp. When they arrived, their clothes were taken and their heads were shaved. Men, women and children were put into concentration camps. Although all camps had plenty of food, the prisoners were starved and many died from malnutrition. In fact, one camp was located beside a bakery that baked 60,000 loaves a day, so there was no reason for any prisoner not to have enough food.

The Holocaust is the name of the genocide of 6 million European Jews during World War II. This genocide was led by Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party of Germany because they wanted to eradicate all Jews from Germany, who at the time, made up a large population of Germany. During the Holocaust, Jews, homosexuals, people with disabilities, Jehovah's Witnesses and many other religious and political groups were put in ghettos and concentration camps. They were starved and executed in gas chambers. The Holocaust is known as one of the most enormous genocides of all time.

During the Holocaust, the Germans killed 1.5 million children. These children were killed as soon as they arrived in the concentration camps, or killing centers. Anytime a child was born, they were killed. Children over the age of 12 were used for either forced labor or scientific experiments.

The Diary of Anne Frank is a popular book about a true life account of a Jewish girl during the Holocaust.
