Jüdische Zwangsarbeiter bei Ehrich & Graetz, Berlin-Treptow (Jewish Forced Laborers at Ehrich & Graetz, Berlin Treptow)

From the Series "Testimonies from the Jewish Museum Berlin"

Between autumn 1940 and February 1943, more than five hundred Berlin Jews were forced to perform slave labor making armaments at the factory of Ehrich & Graetz, a metal-working and electrical company based in the Berlin district of Treptow. As part of the Fabrikaktion (factory operation) on 27 February 1943, the Nazis arrested and imprisoned all the remaining Jewish laborers, who were involved in the production of arms for the war effort. Most were later deported. ID photographs of the Jewish laborers provide evidence of their work at Ehrich & Graetz. The images were saved by two of the factory’s employees just before the war ended and are now on display in our permanent collection.

In addition to documenting all these holdings, this book describes the working and living conditions of forced laborers and the history of the company in the Nazi period. It also recounts the lives and fates of ten women and men in individual biographies.
