Hannah, there seems to be not much relation between your definition and and the reality of the "camps". I never heard of the Dictionary of World War II and now I must wonder who the publisher is. Here is the Wikipedia definition: "Kapo was a term used for certain prisoners who worked inside the Nazi concentration camps during World War II in various lower administrative positions. The German word may mean "foreman" and "non-commissioned officer", and is derived from French for "Corporal" (fr:Caporal) or the Italian word capo. Kapos received more privileges than normal prisoners, towards whom they were often brutal." And here is a similar definition from a glossary library.thinkquest.org/12663/glossary.html : "Kapo Short for Kameraden Polizei, these were prisoners forced to supervise their comrades and act violently less they themselves be killed."
