During World War II, more than twenty million persons from all over Europe were forced to perform labour in the German Reich and the occupied territories. Forced labourers, men, women and children, were put to work everywhere - in arms factories such as Steyr Daimler-Puch AG, as well as at construction sites, in agriculture, the trades and private households. Everybody encountered them - be it as a Wehrmacht soldier in the occupied territories or as a farmer's wife in the Ennstal.

For the first time ever, the exhibition "Forced Labour under National Socialism" tells the entire story of this systematic exploitation and its consequences. With historic exhibits and photographs, it sheds light on the racially defined relationship between the so-called "national community" and forced labourers - showing the entire scope of action available to the persons involved.

After Berlin, Dortmund, Hamburg, Moscow, Prague and Warsaw, the exhibition is now being expanded to include the specifically Austrian aspects of this chronicle. In Austria, the exhibition is hosted exclusively by the Museum Arbeitswelt Steyr.

An exhibition by the Buchenwald and Mittelbau-Dora Memorials Foundation at the Museum Arbeitswelt Steyr, initiated and supported by the foundation "Erinnerung, Verantwortung und Zukunft" (EVZ).

  • All-day admission to the Museum Arbeitswelt for the exhibition "Forced Labour under National Socialism"
