International travelling exhibition on forced labor under National Socialism at the Museum der Arbeit, Hamburg

From November 5, 2015 to April 3, 2016, the exhibition “Forced Labor: The Germans, the Forced Laborers and the War” will be presented at the Museum der Arbeit in Hamburg.

The international travelling exhibition is the first to tell the entire story of forced labor under National Socialism and its post-1945 aftermath. It sheds light on the racist-defined relationships between Germans and forced laborers, but also on individual scope for action. Two staged spaces developed especially for the current venue revolve around forced labor in the armament industry and the camp cosmos in Hamburg.

The exhibition was created by the Buchenwald and Mittelbau-Dora Memorials Foundation, on the initiative and with the sponsorship of the “Remembrance, Responsibility and Future” Foundation. The presentation at the Museum der Arbeit is being carried out with support from the Hamburg culture authorities and the Neuengamme Concentration Camp Memorial. The framework program, realized jointly with the Körber-Stiftung, comprises discussions with experts, guided tours by the curators, film presentations, educational offers for schools, public geocaching, an international conference and more.
