RIGHT NEXT DOOR: FORCED LABOUR
The forced laborers in the camps and medical barracks of REIMAHG were liberated by the US Army on April 12, 13 and 14 in 1945. A few weeks later Germany unconditionally surrendered on May 8, 1945, now more than 75 years ago.
The exhibition »Right Next door: Forced Labor«, which we are presenting on the 75th anniversary of the end of World War II, is dedicated to remembering the survivors and the murdered forced laborers of REIMAHG. The survivors and their families deserve special gratitude from the exhibition team.
This digital version of the exhibition will eventually become available in analog form for schools or other public institutions to host. It was developed with the cooperation of the project, »Thuringia 19_19 Learning Democracy«.
The exhibition tells the story of forced labor at REIMAHG at the Walpersberg near Kahla, its historical context, as well as pre- and post-history.
