Nazi Conspiracy and Aggression, Volume One, Chapter Ten


The use of prisoners of war in the manufacture of arms and
munitions, allocated thereto by Sauckel, was confirmed by
Speer. Speer stated in an interrogation under oath on 18
October 1945 that 40% of all prisoners of war were employed
in the production of weapons and munitions and in subsidiary

“*** A. In the last phase of production, that is, in
the year 1944 when everything collapsed, I had 40% of

[Page 934]

prisoners of war employed in the production. I wanted
to have this percentage increased.

“Q. And when you say employed in the production, you
mean in these subsidiary industries that you have
discussed and also in the production of weapons and
munitions, is that right ?

“A. Yes. That is the total extent of my task.” (3720-

The minutes of the 36th Meeting of the Central Planning
Board, of 22 April 1943, report Speer’s statement that:

“*** 90,000 Russian prisoners of war employed in the
whole of the armament industry are for the greatest
part skilled men.” (R-124)

Speer actively participated in the planning and execution of
the vast program of forcible deportation and enslavement of
the citizens of the occupied countries. As Reich Minister of
Armaments and Munitions and Chief of the Organization Todt,
both of which positions he acquired on 15 February 1942, and
by virtue of his later acquisition of control over the
armament offices of the Army, Navy and Airforce and the
production offices of the Ministry of Economics, Speer was
responsible for the entire war production of the Reich, as
well as for the construction of fortifications and
installations for the Wehrmacht. Proof of the positions held
by Speer is supplied by his signed statement. (2980-PS)

The industries under Speer’s control were the most important
users of manpower in Germany. According to Sauckel, Speer’s
labor requirements received unconditional priority over all
other demands for labor. In an interrogation under oath on
22 September 1945, Sauckel stated:

“The others I only got whatever was left. Because Speer
told me once in the presence of the Fuehrer that I am
here to work for Speer and that mainly I am his man.”

Speer has admitted under oath that he participated in the
discussions during which the decision to use foreign forced
labor was made, that he concurred in the decision, and that
it was the basis for the program of bringing foreign workers
into Germany by compulsion. The transcript of the
interrogation under oath of Speer, on 18 October 1945,
contains the following colloquy:

“Q. But is it clear to you Mr. Speer, that in 1942 when
the decisions were being taken concerning the use of
forced foreign labor that you participated in the
discussions yourself?

“A. Yes.

“Q. So that I take it that the execution of the program

[Page 935]

bringing foreign workers into Germany by compulsion
under Sauckel was based on earlier decisions that had
been taken with your agreement?

“A. Yes, but I must point out that only a very small
part of the manpower that Sauckel brought into Germany
was made available to me; a far larger part of it was
allocated to other departments that demanded them.”

This admission is confirmed by minutes of Speer’s
conferences with Hitler on 10, 11, and 12 August 1942 (R-
124). In these meetings Speer related the outcome of
negotiations concerning the forcible recruitment of a
million Russian laborers for the German armaments industry,
and stated that Hitler would agree to any necessary

The use of force was again discussed by Hitler and Speer on
4 January 1943. It was decided that stronger measures were
to be used to accelerate the conscription of French civilian
workers. (556-13-PS).

Speer demanded foreign workers for the industries under his
control and used these workers with the knowledge that they
had been deported by force and were being compelled to work.
Speer has stated under oath, in an interrogation on 18
October 1945 that:

“I do not wish to give the impression that I want to
deny the fact that I demanded manpower and foreign
manpower from Sauckel very energetically.” (3720-PS)

Speer also admitted, in the course of the same
interrogation, that he knew he was obtaining foreign labor,
a large part of which was forced labor:

“Q. So that during the period when you were asking for
labor, it seems clear, does it not, that you knew that
you were obtaining foreign labor as well- as domestic
labor in response to your requests and that a large
part of the foreign labor was forced labor.

“A. Yes.

“Q. So that, simply by way of illustration, suppose
that on 1 January 1944 you required 50,000 workers for
a given purpose, would you put in a requisition for
50,000 workers, knowing that in that 50,000 there would
be forced foreign workers ?

“A. Yes.” (720-PS)

Speer has furthermore stated under oath that he knew at
least as early as September 1942 that workers from the
Ukraine were being forcibly deported for labor in Germany.
He also knew that the great majority of the workers of the
Western occupied

[Page 936]

countries were slave laborers forced against their will to
come to Germany. These facts are revealed in his
interrogation under oath on 18 October 1945:

“Q. When did you first find out then that some of the
manpower from the Ukraine was not coming voluntarily?

“A. It is rather difficult to answer this here, that
is, to name a certain date to you. However, it is
certain that I knew that at some particular point of
time that the manpower from the Ukraine did not come

“Q. And does that apply also to the manpower from other
occupied countries, that is, did there come a time when
you knew that they were not coming voluntarily?

“A. Yes.

“Q. When, in general, would you say that time was,
without placing a particular month of the year?

“A. As far as the Ukraine situation goes, I believe
that they did not come voluntarily any more after a few
months, because immense mistakes were made in their
treatment by us. I should say offhand that this time
was either in July, August or September of 1942.
“Q. But many workers did come from the West, did they
not, to Germany?

“A. Yes.

“Q. That means then that the great majority of the
workers that came from the Western countries, the
Western occupied countries, came against their will to

“A. Yes.” (3720-PS)

This admission is borne out by other evidence. In April 1943
Speer was informed at a meeting of the Central Planning
Board, that in all countries conscription for work in
Germany could be carried out only with the active assistance
of the police, and that the prevailing methods of
recruitment had provoked such violence that many German
recruiting agents had been killed (R-124). Again, at a
meeting with Hitler to discuss overall manpower requirements
for 1944, Speer was informed by Sauckel that labor
requirements for the German war economy (including Speer’s
requirements of 1,300,000 additional laborers) could be met
only if German enforcement agents were furnished to carry
out the enslavement program in the occupied countries. (1292-

Notwithstanding his knowledge that foreign workers were
being conscripted and deported for use as slave laborers in
Germany, Speer formulated requirements for the foreign
workers and requested their allocation to industries subject
to his control.

[Page 937]

At another meeting of the Central Planning Board, Speer

“Speer: Now, the labor problem in Germany. I believe it
is still possible-to transfer some from the western
territories. The Fuehrer stated only recently he wishes
to dissolve these foreign volunteers as he had the
impression that the army groups were carting around
with them a lot of ballast. Therefore, if we cannot
settle this matter ourselves, we shall have to call a
meeting with the Fuehrer to clear up the coal
situation. Keitel and Zeitzler will be invited to
attend in order to determine the number of Russians
from the rear army territories who can be sent to us.
However, I see another possibility; we might organize
another drive to screen out workers for the mines from
the Russian Ps/W in the Reich But this possibility is
none too promising.” (R-124)

At another meeting of the Central Planning Board, Speer
rejected a suggestion that labor for industries under his
control be furnished from German sources instead of from
foreign countries, for these reasons:

“Speer: We do it that way: Kehrl collects the demands
for labor necessary to complete the coal-and-iron-plan
and communicates the numbers to Sauckel. Probably there
will be a conference at the Reich Marshal’s in the next
week, and an answer from Sauckel should have arrived by
then. The question of recruitment for the armaments
industry will be solved together with Weger.

“Kehrl: I wish to urge that the allotments to the mines
should not be made dependent on the recruitment of men
abroad. We were completely frustrated these last three
months because this principle had been applied. We
ended December with a deficit of 25,000 and we never
get replacements. The number must be made up by men
from Germany.

“Speer: No, nothing doing!” (R-124)

Speer also advocated terror and brutality as a means of
maximizing production by slave laborers who worked in the
industries under his control. In the course of a discussion
concerning the supply and exploitation of labor, Speer

“Speer: We must also discuss the slackers. Ley has
ascertained that the sick list decreased to one fourth
or one fifth in factories where doctors are on the
staff who are examining the sick men. There is nothing
to be said against SS and Police taking drastic steps
and putting those known as slackers into concentration
camps. There is no alternative. Let it happen several
times and the news will soon go round.” (R-124)

[Page 938]

Speer is also guilty of compelling Allied nationals and
prisoners of war to engage not only in the production of
armaments and munitions, but also in direct military
operations, against their own country and its actively
resisting allies. Speer, as Chief of the Organization Todt,
is accountable for its policies which were in direct
conflict with the laws of war. The Organization Todt, in
violation of the laws of war, impressed allied nationals
into its service. Proof of its activity is furnished by an
International Labor Office Study of Exploitation of Foreign
Labor by Germany:

“The methods used for the recruitment of foreign
workers who were destined for employment in the
Organization did not greatly differ from the methods
used for the recruitment of foreigners for deportation
to Germany. The main difference was that, since the
principal activities of the Organization lay outside
the frontiers of Germany, foreigners were not
transported to Germany, but had either to work in their
own country or in some other occupied territory.

“In the recruitment drives for foreign workers for the
Organization methods of compulsion as well as methods
of persuasion were used, the latter usually with very
little result ***.” (L-191)

Similar violations of the laws of warfare are disclosed in

As Chief of German war production, Speer sponsored and
approved the use of prisoners of war in the production of
armaments and munitions which were used against their own
country and its actively resisting allies. This fact has
been demonstrated by the evidence already discussed. To

1. After Speer assumed responsibility for armament
production, his primary concern in his discussions with his
co-conspirators was to secure a larger allocation of
prisoners of war for his armament factories. In a meeting of
the Central Planning Board on 22 April 1943, Speer
complained that only 30% of the Russian prisoners of war
were engaged in the armament industry. (R-124)

2. In an earlier speech, Speer stated that 10,000 prisoners
of war were put at the disposal of the armaments industry
upon his orders. (1435-PS)

3. Finally, Speer advocated returning escaped prisoners of
war to factories as convicts. He said, at a meeting of the
Central Planning Board:

“We have to come to an arrangement with the
Reichsfuehrer SS as soon as possible so that prisoners
of war he picks up

[Page 939]

are made available for our purposes. The Reichsfuehrer
SS gets from 30 to 40,000 men per month. First of all
they have to be divided up. From what classes do these
people come, anyhow? There certainly is a certain
percentage of miners among these people who are picked
up. These few thousand men have to go to the mines
automatically. Certainly, some educational work has to
be done. The men should be put into the factories as
convicts. But they have to return to the factories
where they were before ***.” (R-124)

Speer is also guilty of having approved and sponsored the
program for using concentration camp labor in Nazi armament
factories, which was part of the larger program of
extermination through work. The proof of this activity may
be summarized and supplemented as follows:

1. Speer proposed measures for the exploitation of the
concentration camp labor in armament factories under his-
jurisdiction. At a meeting with Hitler Speer proposed and
Hitler agreed that armament production should not be
established within concentration camps but that
concentration camp labor should be made available to
established armament factories. (R-124)

2. Speer, by arranging for the use of concentration camp
laborers in factories under his control, created an
increasing demand for such labor. This demand was filled in
part by placing in concentration camps persons who would not
ordinarily have been sent there. (1063-D-PS)

3. Speer participated in the exploitation of the victims of
the Nazi program of extermination through work. He
personally selected sites for subsidiary concentration camps
which were established near factories in Upper Austria, and
knew and approved of the general practice of locating
concentration camps near industrial plants which they
supplied with labor (Speer’s interrogation under oath on 18
October 1945. (3720-PS)

Speer visited the concentration camp Mauthaussen and
factories such as those of Krupp, where concentration camp
labor was exploited under barbarous conditions. Despite
personal and first-hand knowledge of these conditions, Speer
continued to direct the use of concentration camp labor in
factories under his jurisdiction. In Speer’s interrogation
under oath on 18 October 1945, he stated:

“Q. But, in general, the use of concentration camp
labor was known to you and approved by you as a source
of labor?

“A. Yes.

“Q. And you knew also, I take it, that among the
inmates of the concentration camps there were both
Germans and foreigners?

[Page 940]

“A. I didn’t think about it at that time.

“Q. As a matter of fact you visited the Austrian
concentration camp personally, did you not?”

“A. I didn’t-well I was in Mauthaussen once but at that
time I was not told just to what categories the inmates
of the concentration camps belonged.

“Q. But in general everybody knew, did they not, that
foreigners who were taken away by the Gestapo, or
arrested by the Gestapo, as well as Germans, found
their way into the concentration camps?

“A. Of course, yes. I didn’t mean to imply anything
like that.”
“Q. Did you ever discuss, by the way, the requirements
of Krupp for foreign labor?

“A. It is certain that it was reported to me what Krupp
had in foreign workers.

“Q. Did you ever discuss it with any of the members of
the Krupp first?

“A. I cannot say that exactly, but during the time of
my activities I visited the Krupp factory more than
once and it is certain that this was discussed, that
is, the lack of manpower.” (3720-PS)
