Sex Slavery – Concentration Camps Ravensbrück and Buchenwald

In the summer of 1943, SS chief Heinrich Himmler ordered that “special buildings” (brothels) be established at each men’s concentration camp, to corrupt political prisoners and to provide “recreation” for SS guards and camp administrators. Each received 18 to 24 women prisoners from Ravensbrück, who were promised release after six months of sex slavery.
