It was up and running from March 17, 1942 and it shut down at the end of December 1942.
The camps were small about 1,220 yards, sourended with barbed wire.
Although the camps were small they were dived into two parts, one side would be were the trucks would come and unload the people ( there would be about 40-60 trucks holding about 2,500people) and the people would sleep in the cabinets and eat there and on the second side of the camp would be the “chamber” were the gases would come out and kill anyone that came in, outside of it there would be the “grave” it would just be a hole where all the body's would get dumbed.
The camps were not very high quality since they were only for one purpose, and that was to hold people till it was their turn to walk to through the “chamber”.
Once the people had been brought to the camps there was no getting out of there, but to hide and pray to god for them to not find you.
Some people tired pretending they would be dead so they could get taken out, but that never worked because they would get shot before just get taken out. Other would just tried climbing the barbed yard but would get found shot at.
On the last minutes the camps started to just walk people through the “chamber” because they new U.S.A were going to kill all the Germans and let the Jews live the camps and the whole thing would be worth nothing.
In 1944-1945 it all officially ended. Although the holocaust did not come until the end of WWII and all German troops surrendered.
Although some people did not get killed and survived, they were scarred for life had those pictured of people getting burned in front of them had no hope of surviving.
