  1. I'm a little offended by the title of this post. It suggests that a concentration camp was set up in Poland by Poles. That is not the case - it was set up by Germans in German occupied Poland. Therefore the correct caption should state: A child from Children Concentration Camp in German Occupied Poland, 1948. A good idea wood be not mentioning a concenctration at all since in 1948 the concentration camp was no longer in use.

  2. Some camps were in use by Russians were they were killing Poles opposed to communist rule
