Maintaining the links between the families and soldiers on the frontline is important during the war. In case of forced labor servicemen, all decisions related to visits by family members, granting or withdrawing leaves depended on the commander. Because of the limitations, it happened that labor servicemen bribed the guards, or tried to establish on their own indirect or direct contacts with their families.
