killing centers

Nazi authorities began operating industrialized killing centers in occupied Poland in late 1941. The means of killing—primarily the use of poison gas—were intended to make the process of mass murder more efficient and less traumatic for the executioners. Nazi killing centers have also been referred to as “death camps” or “extermination camps."
