Researchers at the United States ‘Holocaust Memorial Museum‘ said their studies found that the Nazis had 42,500 camps and ghettos during World War II where they housed prisoners and not 7,000 as was originally thought.
The multitude of camps and ghettos existed from 1933 to 1945 and were located throughout Europe.
Director of the Hartmut Berghoff museum told the New York times “the numbers are much higher than we first thought”.
The director said that for the first time an inventory log has been created of places where the Nazis kept prisoners, which include ‘care centers’ where women were forced to undergo abortions and brothels for German military.
The research began in the year 2000 and researchers believed their study would uncover 7,000 Nazi controlled camp and ghetto sites, but the number kept increasing.
The number of prisoners staying at various locations also varied wildly; from 500,000 people kept at the Warsaw camp in Poland to just a dozen individuals housed in Munich, Germany, where they were servants to a member of the Nazi party.
The complete study will eventually be publicized in a seven-parts encyclopedia.
