    Is there anything new to be said about Nazi concentration camps, one of the most heavily researched topics in recent historiography? Recent work has overwhelmingly focused on the Nazi concentration camps during the Second World War when inmate numbers rose dramatically and the camps became sites of genocide during the Holocaust. But what about the early years of Nazi rule when camp inmates were counted in thousands and not in millions? In July 2008, an international conference, organized by Christian Goeschel and Nikolaus Wachsmann, scrutinized the history of the concentration camps in pre-war Nazi Germany. It was part of a major research project on the Nazi concentration camp system between 1933 and 1939, directed by Nikolaus Wachsmann and funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council.
