FC: Life At Auschwitz death camp. By: Jessica McGinnis.

2: Here's some background information on the holocaust before i get started.

3: The holocaust was the genocide of all Jews.

4: Why I chose this topic. I chose the Auschwitz topic was because i was very interested in the camps that were formed during the Holocaust. I wanted to see what they were fed, what they had to do, what was the living conditions, and what were their punishments.

5: What i already knew & Where I got the information. I already knew that Auschwitz was the most extreme death/ extermination camp. www.google.com www.ask.com www.yahoo.com www.nicenet.org & www.ncwiseowl.net And where I got the information that I already knew was from a book we read in class and knowledge from other grades.

6: My first question. How many people occupied the camp and how many people could it hold ? Keywords i used: Auschwitz. & Population of Auschwitz. | One key pointer; The liberation of Auschwitz was on January 27th, 1945. The population: 2.1 million , to 2.5 million. How many people could it hold?: It could hold more than 200,000 prisoners at a time. But they always put an extra in.

7: Place's used: http://www.kawvalley.k12.ks.us/schools/rjh/marneyg/03_holcaust-projects/03_Brown_Auschwitz.htm http://www.jewishgen.org/ForgottenCamps/Camps/Auschwitz/Eng.html

8: My second question. What was one individual's daily meal at Auschwitz? | Answer. For breakfast. Ten ounces of bread with a small piece of salami, or one ounce of margarine and brown, tasteless coffee with no sugar.

9: For lunch. Around noon they were giving soup, with a quart of water, with a few carrots and rutabagas thrown in. | Their final meal of the day. The final meal of the day was a piece of bread, with a slice of rotten salami, or margarine and jam, sometimes a piece of rotten skim cheese was included.

10: My third question. What was the punishment for the Jew's that tried to escape Auschwitz? | The answer. I couldn't really find the answer, but i did know from prior knowledge. Mostly they got put to death in a gas chamber or shot in a mass grave or even beaten to death.

11: What i learned from this was that the concentration camps were horrible. The living conditions, the food they had to eat.
