Prisoners of War - Deported and Exploited

Kriegsgefangenschaft - Verschleppt und ausgebeutet

In November 2011, the contemporary-history special on the Second World War created by Andreas Novak is concluded with a four-part series on prisoners of war and homecoming. The year 2011 is the 70th anniversary of Germany's invasion of the Soviet Union. This is where the first episode begins a program covering the years to the end of the war. With that, the ORF has produced a TV special of 15 parts in total on the greatest catastropheof the 20th Century.By December 1941, almost two million Red Army soldiers had been captured and used as slave labour in concentration camps, armament factories and at farms. There they met fellow sufferers from Poland and Western Europe. In the subsequent years of «total war», hundreds of thousands of civilians from the former Soviet Union were deported to the Third Reich for forced labour to replace the manpower of conscripted Germans and Austrians.
