The German Reichskommandant in Holland, Seyss-Inquart, proclaimed an ordinance concerning the "duty for the performance of services."  This ordinance provided for the forced employment of Dutch citizens in Nazi-Germany and its occupied territories.

The deployment of foreign labor in Nazi-Germany between 1939 and 1945 represents the largest mass utilization of forced labor in history since the end of slavery during the 19th century. Reports show that in August 1944, 7.8 million foreign workers and prisoners of war were involved and, in addition to these, approximately 500,000 mostly foreign concentration camp inmates. By war's end an estimated 10 million slave laborers were involved.
