This Is A Factual Article
Sometimes history can be hard to believe, but this article is cold hard facts, documented by the US Holocaust Museum.
US Holocaust Memorial Museum
The $40 million Jewish museum, funded by US taxpayers, situated on the Washington Mall, has made some startling discoveries. The museum has pinpointed some 20,000 places of detention and persecution, three times more than they estimated just six years ago.
Red Cross Hide Records
Jewish investigators have gotten access to millions of documents locked away for a half century in the sprawling archive of the International Tracing Service, an arm of the International Committee of the Red Cross, in the central German resort town of Bad Arolsen.
Bigger Monsters Than We Thought
Up until now we knew about Auschwitz, Treblinka, Theristadt, Belzec, Mauthausen, where at least 6,000,000 Jews were gassed, but it could be even worse.
This unparalleled experiment in persecution and genocide that expanded over the next 12 years into a pyramid of ghettos, Gestapo prisons, slave labor camps and, ultimately, extermination factories.
Holocaust historians are only now piecing together the scattered research in many languages to understand the vast scope of the camps, prisons and punishment centers that scarred German-ruled Europe, like a pox on the landscape stretching from Greece to Norway and eastward into Russia.
Lei Karpinsky Was Forced To Service Nazis Sexually
There were 500 brothels, where foreign Jewesses were put at the disposal of German officers, and more than 100 “child care facilities” where women in labor camps were forced to undergo abortions or had their newborns taken away and killed — usually by starvation — so the mothers could quickly return to work.
Hollywood Films Verifies Horrors
Not only did Nazis force women to service them, many felt a riding crop across the face if Nazis weren't satisfied.
The Horror Of 'Kiddie Camps'
This was best described in the film 'The day the clown cried'
A 'Kiddie Camp' Survivor
Some camps disguised gas chambers as doll houses.
Project director Geoffrey Megargee said the museum team gathered fragmentary evidence from different sources to assemble the list.
“Most historians didn’t have a grasp of the scope of the whole universe of camps and ghettos,” he said. “Each of them knew their own little slice.”
When they began work six years ago, Megargee said the researchers estimated 5,000 to 7,000 sites existed. “Based on our research, it is now clear that there were over 20,000 such sites in Germany, in German- occupied territories and in the states allied with Nazi Germany,” he said.

A world behind wire: A map re-created from a drawing by a former Buchenwald prisoner, shows the density of Nazi prisons, concentration camps and killing centers.
Germany Still Pays
Germany government and German industries created a $6.6 billion fund in 2000 to compensate people exploited as wartime slave laborers.
Gunter Saathoff, the director of the German Foundation that administers the fund, said nearly 1.7 million people applied for restitution, including some 8,000 who served as human guinea pigs for Nazi medical experiments.
My First Hand Experience
The thought of twenty thousand mini camps, in addition to the six major ones, makes me shudder. Most were disguised as bakeries, small factories, day schools, etc.
When I was growing up, there was a Jewish family, and I would often play with Benjamin. One day my mother took us to the bakery, momma said to the baker: - 'I want to show the boys the cookie oven', and with that 'Little Benjamin' started shaking, crying, and then ran home. After we left I went to his house and asked what was wrong. The mother started to cry, telling me of their little village in Poland, and how Nazis disguised a killing center as a bakery. Nazis came to the school and told the children to come to the bakery for free cookies. When the eight and ten year olds came to the bakery shop, the the Nazis flung the children in the baking ovens.
