The largest exhibition in the world on forced labor and Nazi Germany is on display at the Kubicki Arcade of the Royal Castle in Warsaw. Forced Labor. Germany, Forced Laborers and War is a touring Polish-German exhibition put together to remember and pay tribute to the over 20 million men, women and children from across Europe who were forced to work in Germany and Nazi-occupied territories as “foreign workers,” prisoners of war and prisoners of concentration camps.

The central section of the exhibition is a collection of 60 narratives documenting numerous cases of forced labor in Nazi-occupied Poland and individual stories of Poles forced to work in Germany.

The exhibition needed two years of extensive archival research by seven historians in 18 countries around the world. It comprises 450 photographs and 500 documents along with a host of multimedia materials, videos and sound clips with witness reports.

In Warsaw, the exhibition has been coordinated by the Buchenwald and Mittelbau-Dora Memorial Sites Foundation. The project was initiated and carried out with the financial support of the Erinnerung, Verantwortung und Zukunft (Remembrance, Responsibility and Future) Foundation in collaboration with the Polish-German Reconciliation Foundation from Warsaw.

Until March 8; Open Tue.-Sat. 10 p.m.-4 p.m., Sun. 11 a.m.-4 p.m.
Entrance from Zamkowy Square, free admission
