    A recent photo find: Poles waiting in line to register at the Arbeitsamt (Labour/Employment exchange) urzad pracy dienststelle Kalisch (in Kalisz).

    Shortly after the German occupation all working-age Polish men were compelled to register with their local German Labour office to work for the Reich. Failure to register could mean being sent to a concentration camp.

    Nice find Stefan! I'd very much like to find an image of the Arbeitsamt Kielce where my father was forcibly registered. This has become a great thread. Best wishes in your continued research

    Cheers,
    Tony

    In this case Maximilian Kwasny was registered on 3 July 1941 to work at TABAK WERK 2 WARSCHAU (Kalisch) - Tobacco Factory 2 Warsaw (Kalisz).

    I am not sure but I think "Tobacco Factory 2 Warsaw" might have been the "Kammlet" tobacco factory as I discovered that "Noblesse" is mentioned as "Wytwórnia Warszawska 1" which could be translated as Warsaw Factory No. 1?

    Caption for Below: Wytwórnia Warszawska 1- Polskiego Monopolu Tytoniowego, dawna fabryka tabaczna "Noblesse" at Pawia ul. 57 (or Polish Tobacco Monopoly or former tobacco factory "Noblesse").

    Duisburg was a major center of the chemical, steel and metallurgical industry and was extensively bombed by the allies during WWII.

    Only one woman is seen wearing the "P" patch who maybe is a new placement as she is seen holding a small cloth-wrapped bundle and has a small hand-bag.

    Stefan see that in most of these women are in protective coats. Is it somehow signed this photograph?
