These were relatively small secret detention centres rather than actual camps. According to the report of CONADEP (Argentine National Commission on the Disappearance of Persons) Report. It states that "We have reason to believe that the true figure is much higher" which is due to the fact that by the time they published the report (in late 1984) the research wasn't fully accomplished; Human Rights Organizations today consider 30,000 to be killed (disappeared).There was a total of 340 secret detention centres all over the country's territory.During World War I, 2,940 German and Austrian men were interned in ten different camps in Australia.
In 1915 many of the smaller camps in Australia closed, with their inmates transferred to larger camps.
The largest camp was at Holsworthy in New South Wales.
Families of the interned men were placed in a camp near Canberra.
During World War II, there were internment camps in country in New South Wales at Orange and Hay for ethnic Germans in Australia of suspect loyalty; German refugees from Nazism including the "Dunera boys"; and Italian immigrants, many later transferred to Tatura in Victoria (4,721 Italian immigrants were interned in Australia).
The Department of Immigration and Border Protection currently jointly manages two immigration centres on Nauru and Manus Island with the host governments of Nauru and Papua New Guinea, for the indefinite detention of asylum seekers attempting to reach Australia by boat.
The claims of the asylum seekers to refugee status are processed in these centres.
They are a part of the Australian government's policy that asylum seekers attempting to reach Australia by boat will never be permitted to settle in Australia, even if they are found to be refugees, but may be settled in other countries.
The clear intention of the Australian government's policy is to deter asylum seekers attempting to reach Australia by boat.
This is a list of internment and concentration camps, organized by country.
