It is distasteful and insensitive on the writer's part to say her working environment reminded her of concentration camps.
In these camps, often appropriately called death camps, thousands were forced to live in despicable conditions round the clock, had constant fear of brutal and at times lethal torture, and a majority of those not shot or gassed to death died of diseases or starvation.
Under no circumstances should a 9-5 job at a bank (most likely with a lunch break) be compared to life in a concentration camps, even if the chief executive officer and HR Manager decide against renewing someone's employment contract.
The author should refrain from trivialising the horrid fate of millions of victims of concentration camps.
