About the Holocaust

Between 1933 and 1945, Nazi Germany established about 20,000 camps to imprison its many millions of victims. These camps were used for a range of purposes including forced-labor camps, transit camps which served as temporary way stations, and killing centers built primarily or exclusively for mass murder.

The death marches were for the Nazis to transport the prisoners to a new concentration camp and get rid of the others so there was no evidence.

Baptized a Catholic, Adolf Hitler was born on April 20, 1889, in the Upper Austrian border town Braunau am Inn, located approximately 65 miles east of Munich and nearly 30 miles north of Salzburg.
