The story of the inhumane system of forced labour will be told through individual fates. Reconstructed using a combination of photographs, documents and personal accounts, these biographies testify to the exploitation and suffering endured by the almost three million Polish slave and forced labourers under the Nazi regime. A separate section of the exhibition was devoted to the history of the preservedsuburb of Neuaubing. A branch of the Munich Documentation Centre for the History of National Socialism will be established at this historic location over the next years.
The exhibition is the result of a cooperation between the Foundation for Polish-German Reconciliation and the Nazi Forced Labour Documentation Centre in Berlin-Schöneweide.
The accompanying programme of film screenings, conversations with contemporary witnesses and discussions was realised in cooperation with the Consulate-General of the Republic of Poland in Munich and the Foundation for Polish-German Reconciliation.
