How to use "Labor camp" in context?

Labor camps have a long and troubling history. They were originally designed as a way for governments to keep their citizens in line, by force if necessary. The first labor camps were created in Nazi Germany, and they were used to incarcerate political opponents, Jews, and others who were deemed to be a threat to the state. Labor camps have since been used by various governments throughout the world to keep their citizens in line, without having to worry about the consequences of torture or death.
