Within the camp there were various parts. Small factories let the prisonners work under poor circumstances. In a corner of the camp were the penal barrracks, surrounded by even more barb wire. Here the jews that had hide from the Nazi's were punished for that fact and often they were put on transport rather quickly after arrival. The Nazi camp guards told them that in Poland they would be treated worst then they others, just because they had hidden themselves. Also the family Frank ended up here before going on transport to the concentration camps. Which family Frank, I hear some say. Well, maybe then it's time that you read Anne Frank's diary.
