It was established by Germans in 1940, in the suburbs of Oswiecim, a Polish city that was annexed to the Third Reich by the Nazis. Its name was changed to Auschwitz...'(Auschwitz.org). The direct reason for the creation of the camp was due to the mass arrest of poles exceeding the maximum capacity of the local prisons. In 1942 it became the largest of the death camps created.
