Children were sent to Auschwitz together with adults. They were treated in the same way as adults. The majority of them died in gas chambers soon after arrival in the camp. The selected few were sent to the camp where they found the same conditions and restrictions as adults. Some children, for instance twins, served as objects of criminal experiments. Others had to work hard. The children sent to the camp were registered and denominated often as political prisoners.
