The Nazi party's philosophy and policies regarding laborwere fundamentally shaped by the circumstances of itsmaturation, especially the German inflation and depression.Therefore, it is necessary to examine the legislative actionsof the Nazi party after it assumed power in 1933 to show thetype and degree of controls that the Nazis established overthe German workers prior to the war and subsequently extendedto the foreign workers, and to illuminate some of thelater inconsistencies in the foreign labor program.
