The Siemens-Schuckertwerke, a factory founded in 1903, was, along with Siemens & Halske, one of the parent companies of Siemens. When World War II began, some 1,800 Jewish Berliners were forced to work there - until their deportation in the summer of 1942. The Schuckertwerke also deployed civilian forced labourers, mostly from the Czech Republic, Poland and the Soviet Union, prisoners of war and concentration camp inmates to work in the war production. By August 1942, 42 percent of all workers at the electrical company were there against their will.
