The Nazi policy of workforces mass relocation to the South of the Reich Commissariat Ukraine in 1942

This paper aims to consider the Nazi policy of internal workforces mass relocation to the south of the Reich Commissariat «Ukraine» in 1942. The methodology of the study incorporates general scientific and special historical methods alongside with the fundamental principles of historical research: historicism, scientificity, objectivity, and systematicity. The principles of historicism and scientificity have contributed to the complex representation of the history of the workforces relocation to the south of the Reich Commissariat «Ukraine» in all its complexity and variety, in interconnection and interrelation with the events of that period. The principle of objectivity has facilitated the analysis of the discussed issue considering the objective historical regularities based on a comprehensive analysis of the existing specialized literature and sources. The principle of systematicity has allowed to obtain a holistic picture of the Nazi policy of the workforces mass relocation to the south of the Reich Commissariat «Ukraine». The scientific novelty of the paper is conditioned by the fact that it is the first research discussing the Nazi policy of internal workforces mass relocation to the south of the Reich Commissariat «Ukraine» for using them in agriculture in 1942 on the basis of a comprehensive range of historical sources. As the result, the authors conclude that the workforces mass relocation to the south of the Reich Commissariat «Ukraine» in 1942 was initiated by the Nazi policy. They were used in agriculture there. Meanwhile, the occupational government began excessively sending the local people to work in Germany since spring 1942, which, in fact, jeopardized the campaign to relocate workforces to the south. As a result, the recruitment geography and their social composition were expanded. Consequently, the Nazi policy of sending the local people to the south of the Reich Commissariat «Ukraine» in 1942 was not fully implemented. And this, in its turn, led to the total existing workforces exploitation.
