RT Book, Whole DB /z-wcorg/ DS http://worldcat.org ID 43599021 LA English T1 Working for the enemy : Ford, General Motors, and forced labor in Germany during the Second World War A1 Billstein, Reinhold,, PB Berghahn Books PP New York YR 2000 SN 1571812245 9781571812247 AB About eight million people were forced to work for the "Reich war economy" during the Second World War. Their stories were rediscovered in recent years by a new, detail- and person-oriented approach to contemporary history. Fifty-four years after the end of the war, the lack of restitution for their labor and their suffering has turned into an international legal dispute. This collection presents new studies by leading German historians that reveal how General Motor's and Ford's subsidiaries in Nazi Germany became involved in the Hitler regime and its crimes. It also contains gripping oral accounts from a number of former slave laborers, an overview of the current legal and political issues, and a wealth of pictorial material.
