Allied Concentration Camps

The term “concentration camp” is today used almost exclusively in the context of the camps operated by the Third Reich. Yet the Germans were not unique in locking up members of their civilian populace in mass internment camps. The Allied powers did likewise, although with a happier outcome for the inmates: their captors won the war. For German concentration camps see under “Holocaust” & Final Solution.
