The exhibition has been mounted by the Buchenwald and Mittelbau-Dora Memorials Foundation in recognition of Polish forced labourers. The display was first presented in the Jewish Museum in Berlin in 2010-2011, and then travelled to The Moscow Central Museum of the Great Patriotic War and later to LWL-Industriemuseum Zeche Zollern in Dortmund.

The exhibition comprises over sixty chronologically and thematically arranged stories, which show many instances of forced labour in Poland under the Nazis and individual stories of Polish forced labourers in Germany. Polish and German partners of the exhibition run a related comprehensive educational programme, which offers lectures, workshops and a scholarly conference at the University of Warsaw.

This exhibition by the Buchenwald and Mittelbau-Dora Memorials Foundation has been initiated and sponsored by the Remembrance, Responsibility and Future Foundation (EVZ) and enjoys honorary patronage of the President of the Republic of Poland, Bronisław Komorwski, and the President of the Federal Republic of Germany, Joachim Gauck.

The exhibition will run until March 8th.
