80 years ago, on 15 March 1939, the German Wehrmacht moved into the remainder of Czechoslovakia. Already in 1938, as a result of the Munich Agreement, Germany had annexed the so-called Sudetenland. Hundreds of thousands of Czechs were deported to forced labour in the German Reich. At the same time, many forced labor camps emerged in the occupied Czech Republic.

The exhibition "Lost memory. Places of Nazi forced labour in the Czech Republic" presents 18 camps, for example the ghetto Theresienstadt and in the city of Prague. Shown are historical pictures, survivor’s statements and today's views of the places. The exhibition affects the history of forced labour as well as the contemporary way of dealing with its heritage.
