Is it possible for there to have been more deaths in one Nazi concentration camp than at Pompeii during the eruption of Vesuvius?

    Certainly. But why do you ask? What does Pompeii have to do with it? Pompeii wasn't the biggest natural disaster in the world ever.

    The eruption that destroyed Pompeii was said to have lasted 18 hours. Overall deaths were estimated at 16,000.

    In the Lublin Reservation, in the 'Harvest Festival' massacre of 1943:

    "Aktion Erntefest took place on November 3 and 4, 1943. On the orders of Christian Wirth and Jakob Sporrenberg, approximately 42,000–43,000 Polish Jews were killed simultaneously. Virtually the entire Jewish workforce was eliminated, thus concluding Operation Reinhard."

    So - yes.

    Yes. The eruption of Vesuvius was a one-off event, 

    people were not arriving daily by the trainload.

    1200 deaths at Pompeii = a tiny village in Byelorussia destroyed by an Einsatz Kommando in one day.

    You think it through.

    Considering that just in Auschwitz alone it's estimated that approx. 1.1 million were murdered the answer is almost certainly yes.
