Good wages and free board, accommodation and clothing are promised. What is not mentioned is that the clothing is an SS uniform. Today the flimsy wooden barracks for the prisoners are long gone.
All that remains is an eerily empty, rocky field, about 80km 50 miles north of Berlin. But still standing are eight solidly built, attractive villas with wooden shutters and balconies.
They are a s Nazi version of medieval German cottages. That is where the female guards lived, some with their children. From the balconies they could overlook a forest and a pretty lake. But from their bedrooms they would have also seen chain-gangs of prisoners and the chimneys of the gas chamber. Many of the young women came from poorer families, left school early and had few career opportunities.
A job at a concentration camp meant higher wages, comfortable accommodation and financial independence. Many Good looking older women naked been indoctrinated early in Nazi youth groups and believed in Hitler's ideology. Inside one of the houses a new exhibition displays photos of the women in their spare time. Most were in their twenties, pretty with fashionable hairstyles.

This year it will be released in other countries, including Germany. More thanwomen from all over Europe were imprisoned here. Many were resistance fighters or political opponents. Others were deemed "unfit" for Nazi society: Jews, lesbians, sex workers or homeless women. At least 30, women died here.
Some were gassed or hanged, others starved, died of disease or were worked to death. They were treated brutally by many of the female guards - beaten, tortured or murdered.

The cliche of the blonde, sadistic woman in an SS uniform later became a sexualised cult figure in films and comics. But out of thousands of women who worked as SS guards, only 77 were brought to trial. And very few were actually convicted. They portrayed themselves as ignorant helpers - easily done in patriarchal post-war West Germany. Most never talked about the past. They got married, changed their names and faded into society. One woman, Herta Bothe, who was jailed for horrendous acts of violence, did later speak publicly.
She was pardoned by the British, after just a few years in prison. In a rare interview, recorded in just before she died, she remained unrepentant. The mistake was that it was a concentration camp, but I had to go to it, otherwise I would have been put into it myself. That was my mistake. That was an excuse former guards often gave. But it was not true. They were allowed to go and did not suffer negative consequences. I ask Selma if she thinks the guards were diabolical monsters.
I think it's possible with lo of people, even in England. I think that can happen anywhere. It can happen here if it's allowed.
