Abstract and Keywords

Recent studies show that forced labour sites were far more numerous than previously thought. While maintaining that the term ‘slave labour’ understates the condition of Jewish workers during the Nazi era, this article provides a taxonomy of the Nazi regime's use of forced, especially Jewish, labour from 1938 to 1945. It outlines the circumstances that made such labour lethal to greater or lesser degrees in particular times and places.

Keywords: Jews, forced labour, Jewish labour, Nazis
