Stone reminds us that the first concentration camps originated in three locations at the turn of the twentieth century: the Spanish-American war in Cuba, the Philippine-American war, and the Anglo-Boer War in South Africa.
For the Third Reich, the camps served different purposes at different times. This fact alone belies our need to see Auschwitz or Belsen as the camp rather than a limit case. While we sat there a snake came in…very poisonous, so they all ran out, and I attacked the creature with my parasol.
Rain also comes in through the entrance due to the difficulty in properly closing the tents. When the camp floods, water flows from the walkways into tent entrances almost completely surrounding some tents with up to a foot of water. Reports from Manus RPC have been worse. Such testimonies confirm another feature of the concentrationary universe: a bureaucratic structure designed chiefly to dehumanise. Anne Frank was born in the German city of Frankfurt am Main in Unemployment was high and poverty was severe in Germany, and it was the period in which Adolf Hitler and his party were gaining more and more supporters.
Hitler hated the Jews and blamed them for the problems in the country. He took advantage of the rampant antisemitic sentiments in Germany. The hatred of Jews and the poor economic situation made Anne's parents, Otto and Edith Frank, decide to move to Amsterdam. There, Otto founded a company that traded in pectin, a gelling agent for making jam.
Before long, Anne felt right at home in the Netherlands. She learned the language, made new friends and went to a Dutch school near her home. Her father worked hard to get his business off the ground, but it was not easy. Otto also tried to set up a company in England, but the plan fell through.
Things looked up when he started selling herbs and spices in addition to the pectin. Not long after, on 10 May , the Nazis also invaded the Netherlands. Five days later, the Dutch army surrendered. Slowly but surely, the Nazis introduced more and more laws and regulations that made the lives of Jews more difficult.

For instance, Jews could no longer visit parks, cinemas, or non-Jewish shops. The rules meant that more and more places became off-limits to Anne. Her father lost his company, since Jews were no longer allowed to run their own businesses. All Jewish children, including Anne, had to go to separate Jewish schools.
