Maps showing camps

Question

I am looking for information listing the concentration camp sites. I am also interested in any pertinent maps which show the locations of them. I have one such map (Microsoft) which shows some of the camps, nearby cities and current political boundaries. I was wondering if there are others available, or if you could provide me with a link to such information.

Hello,

I am one of the persons who answers questions for the Holocaust History Project.

This question has come up before and I will link to my colleagues answer. Be aware however that the link in the answer for an online map is no longer available. I will provide an online link first, and then a link to his answer. He provides good book resources. The best of luck to you.
