Coming into power, the Nazis quickly moved to ruthlessly suppress all real or potential opposition. The general public was intimidated through arbitrary psychological terror of special courts, especially during the first years of their existence, These courts "had a strong deterrent effect" against any form of political protest.
The first Nazi concentration camps were erected in Germany in March 1933 immediately after Hitler became Chancellor. Camps were established throughout the territories they controlled to hold and torture political opponents and union organizers.
The camps were initially under the control of Reich Interior Minister Wilhelm Frick and Prussian Acting Interior Minister Hermann Göring. Heinrich Himmler's SS took full control of the police and concentration camps in 1934–35. Himmler expanded the role of the camps to holding so-called "racially undesirable elements" of German society, such as Jews, criminals, homosexuals, and Romani people.
Holocaust scholars draw a distinction between concentration camps and extermination camps. Use of the word "concentration" came from the idea of using documents confining to one place a group of people who are in some way undesirable. Extermination camps, were established by the Nazis for the industrial-scale mass execution of the predominantly Jewish ghetto and concentration camp populations.
