The history of forced labour during WWII was not restricted solely to the actual German Reich, but likewise affected the territories occupied by the Germans and their Allies. Forced labour of more than 600,000 Koreans who worked under Japanese rule, including thousands of women forced into sexual slavery under the banner of “comfort women”, has been entangled in a series of complex historical
questions over the nature of labour, its postwar history and memory, including the issues of repatriation and compensation.
The project developed by the International Youth Centre of the Nazi Forced Labour Documentation Centre in cooperation with the Critical Global Studies Institute at the Sogang University provided a forum for young educators from Germany and South Korea to exchange ideas on methods and teaching practices and learn more about the topic of forced labour in a historical context from a transnational perspective. During the presentation the participants will discuss the challenges and opportunities of teaching the topic of forced labour using a transnational approach.
