OST: An Untold History of Nazi Germany's Forced Labour Camps (Hardback)

£30.00
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

An Ostarbeiter was an "Eastern Worker", rounded up by Nazi Germany from the captured territories in Central and Eastern Europe. By the end of the war, it is estimated that approximately 3 million to 5.5. million Ostarbeiters were forced to work in guarded work camps, many of them younger than 16 years old - at which age they would be conscripted for military service. Ostarbeiters worked 12 hours a day on starvation on rations; as ethnic Slavs, they were treated with extraordinary brutality by Nazi guards who considered them 'sub-human' by the standards of the Aryan master race. They were distinguished by the label 'OST' sewn onto their uniforms.



OST is the first and only serious full-scale historical research on the Ostarbeiters. It is based on over two hundred personal accounts, hundreds of hours of interviews, and over 350,000 letters. This important publication will ensure that the voices of the brutalised and displaced Osterbeiters will not be forgotten.
