“Holocaust and Forced Labor in Galicia“ Nazi Documentation Centre

Tour with the Curator for Friends and Sponsors (in German)

The Nazi Forced Labor Documentation Centre at the historical site in Berlin-Schöneweide illustrates the individual fates of men, women, and children who were exploited as forced laborers by the Nazi regime during the Second World War.

The striking travelling exhibition Holocaust and Forced Labor in Galicia addresses German occupation policy towards the Jewish population in the district of Galicia, where more than 500,000 Jews lived. Almost all of them were murdered by the Germans during the Second World War. The exhibition illustrates individual fates through that of Holocaust survivor Józef Lipman and the rescue attempts of individual helpers. During our guided tour with the curator of the exhibition, Klaus Hasbron-Blume, you will gain detailed insights into the exhibition and have the opportunity to talk to the curator.
