LuxTime Machine seminar with Inna Ganschow: The parallel life behind the barbed wire in the Minette region in 1942-1944

The lecture by Inna Ganschow in the framework of LuxTime Machine is about two years in the history of the Minette region, from 1942 to 1944. The reconstruction focuses on the life in the camp of the female forced labourers who had been deported from the Soviet Union for slave labor in the steel industry of Luxembourg. "The big data of the past" as much as the so called ego-docments like letters, photos and memories after the liberation allow to get to the bottom of the daily life of thousands of the Soviet teenagers, who lived directly at the plant in the barracks behind the barbed wire, were subjected to an enormous workload and had neither enough food nor free time.
