The permanent exhibition presents the history of forced labour during the time of National Socialism as an omnipresent mass phenomenon. It shows the day-to-day lives of displaced men, women, and children – inside the camp, at work and in exchange with the German population. It visualises the impact the racial hierarchy of the National Socialist-regime had on the lives of forced labourers.
