DIRECTIONS: The Encyclopedia of Camps and Ghettos, 1933 to 1945 of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, cataloged approximately 42,500 Nazi ghettos and camps throughout Europe, spanning German-controlled areas from France to Russia and Germany, operating from 1933 to 1945. They estimate that 15 million to 20 million people died or were imprisoned in the sites.
