Over half a million people were brought to Berlin to perform forced labor during the course of World War II. They worked for the arms industry and the state railway, for builders, in churches, hospitals, and private homes. The search for traces leads to forgotten camps and factories, but also new signs of remembrance. The tour ends at the Documentation Center on Nazi Forced Labor in Berlin Schöneweide, the last preserved camp in Berlin that can be visited.
