On January 19, 1946, the French Opening continued with a presentation by Jacques B. Herzog, Assistant French Prosecutor. He presented evidence regarding the German workforce including 738,000 French workers who were pressed into compulsory labor service. He noted that defendant Fritz Sauckel was willing to take responsibility for the treatment of foreign workers. He cited a report where Sauckel admitted that there were 5 million foreign workers in Germany, of whom 20,000 were actually volunteers.
