Hi Eve

There is a great difference between the interment camps during Hitler’s reign and the turned into refugees concentration camps after the war was over.

The refugee’s concentration camps which served our German people from the East and Southeast Europe were not interment camps they were primarily concentration camps from where people were disbursed as fast as soon as opportunities for them were found elsewhere. However, they were in operation for some ten years till most of the people living there found new homes. Many of the camps were set up in German Army barracks used during the war for the German troops. In most larger cities the was quite a few of them.

This information should clear up the questions on the camps.
