There were thousands of camps all over Germany a long time before they started building the true death camps.

What were the different types of camps in World War 2?

== == The following are the types of camps that were used in the Holocaust: * "Concentration camps" is the generic term for the prison camps maintained by the Third Reich. * "Labor camps" were those that were maintained for the purpose of exploiting slave labor. * "Extermination camps" were six camps located in Poland where the mass murder of Jews and others took place. Many of the concentration camps were complexes of several camps and some had dual functions. At the Auschwitz complex, for example, most of the genocide took place in a subcamp called Birkenau. There was also a labor camp named Monowitz that was part of the complex where an artificial rubber plant was built. Likewise, Treblinka, another extermination camp, was part of a complex of three camps, two of which were used for slave labor.

What is the solutions to concentration camps?

It depends on what you mean by what was the solution to the camps, if you mean to the American then all they did was liberate them. If you mean to the Germans then the solution "The answer to the Jewish question" as it was called was to build Death Camps. These were where the Germans killed the women and children in gas chambers, and starved them. Another way was to starve them. when they were dead the Germans would burn them in what they called crematorium which were huge ovens used to burn them in mass numbers.
