EXHIBITION

“LOST MEMORY? NAZI FORCED LABOUR SITES IN THE CZECH REPUBLIC”

The exhibition focuses on the little-known history of Nazi forced labour in Bohemia. It tells of events which took placed from 1938-1945, but which continue to shape the landscapes of Bohemia, Moravia and Silesia. Based on 18 exemplary sites, the German-Czech exhibition shines a light on Nazi forced labour in the Czech Republic. Contemporary images of the sites are presented alongside eyewitness testimonies and historical photographs connected with Nazi forced labour and the post-war history of the sites. Special attention was given in the selection of materials to the depiction of foreigners as well as Czech victims, thereby highlighting the European dimensions of Nazi forced labour. The exhibition is on view in Havířov, Czech Republic, until 11 September, and from 15 September onward at the Gross-Rosen Museum in Poland.
