The Concentration Camp: Charges Against Concentration Camp Inmates

Nazi Conspiracy & Aggression
Volume I Chapter XI

[Page 956]

In the Eastern territories, these victims were apprehended for extermination in concentration camps without any charges having been made against them. In the Western occupied territories, charges were apparently made against some of the victims. Some of the charges which the Nazis considered sufficient basis for confinement in a concentration camp are illustrated in a summary of the file of the dossier of 25 persons arrested in Luxembourg for commitment to various concentration camps and sets forth the charges made against each person (L-215).

These charges read as follows: Name / Charge / Place of Confinement
