homefront is a name given to the activities of the civilians during a state of war. Germany employed millions of forced laborers and POWs. rationing was introduced. later on, a strict rationing program was introduced. The system gave extra rations for men involved in heavy industry, and lower rations for Jews and Poles in the areas occupied by Germany, but not to the Rhineland Poles. women were not meant to work, but children had to collect materials for the production of war equipment.

um that's about it i guess
