SHRINKING STATS : 
 
Deaths in German Prison Camps From 1933 To 1945
 
(Taken from the Final Conflict Newsletter dated January 28, 2004)
 
 

These records state that the total of all persons who died in the ENTIRE German prison camp system from 1935 to 1945 were 403,713.  To
repeat: a total of 403,713 persons of all races and religions was officially recorded to have died (of all causes. typhus, old age, measles, etc.-and execution) in the entire prison camp system over a 10 year period.

Gentlemen, According to the Intl Red Cross Office in Arolsen which is controlled by the Allies (still), the official sum Total for all persons
who died in all German camps from their inception to the time the Allies took them over, and numbers which were openly publicised in 1984, is 282,077 people.  

To this I must add that in Bergen-Belsen for example around 6,000 people had died in the camp while it was still under the control of the SS. In the first two months after the British took over the camp a further 13,000 people died of illnesses.  

In Dora-Mittelbau camp American bombers killed around 1700 people in the camp one day before their ground forces took the camp but in both these cases the unfortunate deaths of these people were added onto the numbers who died in the camps.  

The Germans had 90 main camps and all deaths in the hundreds of satellite camps were registered in the main camps.   So if we divide 282,077 by 90 we get a a total of 3,134 deaths per camp from 1933-1945.   If we divide the 3,134 by the 12 years the Nazis were in power we
get a total of 261 deaths per camp, per year.   Those are the numbers of the Holocaust.
