Information Provided by Michael D. Bulmash:

Nicholai Bigunow was born May 9, 1920 in Odessa, in the Ukraine. His Third Reich workbook -Arbeitsbuch fur Auslander-refers to him as an Ostarbeiter or Eastern Worker. Because Ostarbieter are considered enemies of the state they are taken by force and shipped by train to Germany, they are treated as prisoners irrespective of sex, and kept in camps under guard. He worked in the Berlin area. In 1945, he was working for a building company.
