Siemens Work Detail in Bobrek near Auschwitz-Birkenau

In October 1943, four Siemens employees, including the engineer Kurt Bundzus, assembled the Siemens Bobrek work detail with 120 mostly Jewish prisoners of the Auschwitz concentration camp. They made the concentration camp prisoners take at least two theoretical and practical aptitude tests to ensure that the selected forced labourers were well-trained. The forced labourers in the Siemens work detail had to build the production halls through manual labour. The Siemens work detail, which consisted of 213 men and 38 women, including 24 youths between the ages of 11 and 18, began producing war tools in May 1944.
