    The Concentration Camps Part Two - Expansion and Peacetime Camp Life

    The Concentration Camps Part Two - Expansion and Peacetime Camp Life

    The concentration camps symbolize the Holocaust. But the twisted road to Auschwitz was only one path in a wider system of terror. How did the concentration camp system change from 1935 to 1938? Who was in charge? How did the camps go from shrinking to expanding? What was the SS camp culture? What was life like for the prisoners? Join us for part two of our series on the evolution of the concentration camp system. In this episode, Chris and Ryan examine the expansion and experience of the pre-war camps up to Kristallnacht.
