During the Nazi era, Siemens employed around 100,000 forced labourers. The company has not yet comprehensively dealt with this issue.

Jews from Berlin, civilian forced labourers from Eastern and Western Europe, especially from the Soviet Union and Poland, concentration camp prisoners, prisoners of war and convicts had to work for Siemens. Under the direction of Prof. Dr. Stephan Lehnstaedt and Dr. Christine Glauning, students at Touro College Berlin have created a digital exhibition on the subject.

The presentation is based on a biographical approach. The life stories of various forced labourers are presented, as well as those of people who were responsible for the use of forced labour,
who were responsible for the use of forced labour, as well as guards and supervisory personnel.
