Do you think that the average german citizen new about what was happening or if they even new that the "Camps" existance.

I ask cause of a conversation with a foriegn artillery officer here in the U.S.A. for school....he says that we have the same kind of camps....

Our camps were similar, not the same. During WWII, people of Japanese lineage were rounded up and sent to internment camps for the duration of the Pacific campaign. The major difference is that we havent committed genocide since the relocation of Native Americans because of "Manifest Destiny". Our government promoted a lot of attrociase things, but it was never official, written policy.

Read a book titled "Other Loses". It's all about the German Holocaust after the war.

The German citizens knew that Jews were being rounded up, and they knew that they were being sent somewhere. They knew enough about what went on in concentration camps to keep them in line. Did they know about the gas chambers and the ovens? Probably not, but they knew that the Jews and other dissidents were going somewhere and if you start asking too many questions or start being disloyal you'd wind up there too!

There's no way the German people did not know about the systematic murder of 11,000,000 people.
