Project management is a guide to increase success of a project, especially complex projects with an end date in the immediate future or lasting years. This is the study of how a process known industry wide as Project Management was used to implement the concentration camp system during World War II. Available text, film documentaries, testimonials, and official military reports establish boundaries of this Capstone paper to start with the transportation from the ghettos and concluding within six to eight weeks of establishing Displacement Person Camps for survivors. Information and descriptions from a range of camps was compared and combined. I am confident reports of one camp represent others without overstating or understating the process each camp put into practice.
