Forced Labor + Exploitation

When Germany’s war efforts stalled in late 1942, she faced formidable challenges not only at the various fronts but also at the home front, where millions of working men were missing. Hence Germany recruited many foreign volunteers to work in Germany. The inmates in the various ghettos and camps were also used to alleviate the country’s labor shortage. Later on, forced labor recruitments also occurred across Europe.
