Forced labor during the Nazi era was neighborhood crime: Passers-by in Berlin encountered forced laborers in Kreuzberg at Lindenstrasse 28 where one of the approximately 3,000 camps in the city was located. Up to 60 % of the Berlin AEG workforce were forced laborers, recognizable by badges on their clothes. However, few concrete facts and places of remembrance exist.

The historians Christine Glauning, Cord Pagenstecher, and Jens-Christian Wagner talk about historical facts and places of forced labor during the Nazi era. They present recently discovered photographic material and tackle the question of how this societal crime and the fates of the forced laborers are remembered.

In cooperation with the Foundation "Remembrance, Responsibility and Future".
