The article presents in great detail and authenticity the first show organized and performed by Serbian workers in Berlin comprising singing, theatrical play parts and playing various instruments. A supposedly original picture depicting the event itself has been added for supreme authenticity along the very detailed program listing the parts of the program and even some of the performers. A political speech by one of the workers describing importance of work during the struggle against Bolshevism is also listed as a part of the program.
Articles presented in “Historical Newspapers” category are from historic newspapers printed in Belgrade from 1941 till 1944. Most of the articles have been printed in Novo vreme – New Times magazine. This magazine has been printed by collaborationist government and thus reflects propagandistic and positive attitudes towards Third Reich and labor issues including the forced and voluntary labor. A whole range of themes covered in articles present the complexity of forced labor in that time and a huge effort by collaborationist government and the media supporting it to present labor issue in a way suitable for Third Reich and its goal of acquiring sufficient number of workers from Serbia in one way or another.
