Gender, Race, and the Wartime Workforce: The Nazi Labour Administration and Female Forced Labour from Occupied Eastern Europe

20.10.2015, Vortrag, DHI London

This lecture by Elizabeth Harvey (Nottingham) will explore why such a substantial proportion of the civilian forced labourers recruited from occupied Poland and the occupied Soviet territories for work in wartime Nazi Germany was female. It will consider factors influencing the demand for and supply of female foreign labour and explore the recruitment policies and practices of the Reich labour administration. 

The research seminar starts at 5.30 pm.
