Abstract


Social and everyday-life aspects of labour under German occupation: Examples from mining industry in Yugoslavia (1941-1944/45)

Abstract

In the former Yugoslav states, the historiography and representations of World War Two have been intertwined with the discursive consequences of violent dissolution of the state: those who had been heroes (the communist-led liberation movement) became villains; those who had been condemned (the Home-Guards, the Chetniks, the Ustasha) became saviours of the fatherland. Yet, some differentiating studies have been done; however, only a few have taken a social history approach, and even fewer have dealt with forced labour. The author takes recent studies on the labour deployment in Ukraine, Serbia, Croatia, Poland and the Baltic countries as a point of departure to reflect on the benefits of researching socioeconomic exploitation from the perspective of the occupied populations. She displays aspects of the labour done for the occupiers in four mining populations in Slovenia and Serbia, including labour relation-ships, working conditions, racial ideology and policy, demographic changes, sabotages, and strategies of survival.
