Description The conference paper was presented at the expert forum Jews and Moravia (Židé a Morava), which took place in Kroměříž on 13 November 2013. Within the main outline, the author traces and defines the forms of Jewish forced labour benefiting the Baťa concern, and the underlying analysis is carried out utilising the examples of the Baťa plants located in the Moravian town of Dubňany (the Protectorate), Sezimovo Ústí in southern Bohemia (the Protectorate), Ottmuth (the Altreich, or old Reich), Chełmek (Gau Oberschlesien, the district of Upper Silesia), and Radom (the General Government). During the rather short period of slightly more than two years (1941 – 1943), various Baťa-funded projects were realised with Jewish forced labourers, or workers classified as Jews by the Nazi administration. Although the total number of these people cannot be exactly determined, it is highly probable that as many as 1.700 persons were thus exploited by the company. The working and social conditions differed according to the status assigned to a concrete group of labourers.
