The Bitch of Buchenwald
This entry is brought to you courtesy of Swellco & Swellco’s month-long homage to Women’s History Month, “The Female Power Project.”
Why do all the Female Power Project entries have to be about positive women? Men aren’t the only ones capable of violence and sadism.
Ilse Koch… when I type this I really want to type Ilse Kock. It just seems so fitting. She was a baaaadddd woman. Koch was an employee of the Buchenwald concentration camp and wife of the commandant. She was also the loose inspiration of the Ilsa Nazi Fetish Sexploitation movies of the 70′s. (Interesting fact- Ilsa: She Wolf of the S.S. was filmed on the set of Hoagan’s Heros)
Some of the things the real Ilsa enjoyed were and not limited to:
-Riding around the Buchenwald concentration camp in scanty attire and having prisoners severely beaten for looking. Unlike her bombshell movie counterpart, Ilse was not a looker. And considering their situation, I can’t imagine too many prisoners staring in admiration.
-She was obsessed with the tattooed skin of prisoners who were executed. She used them for lampshades, “leather” bound books, knife cases, handbags, gloves, and even a pair of shoes. “I feel like this human lamp would really bring the room together.”
-Beating her prisoners mercilessly with her favorite whip and forcing them into freakish orgies. Was General Koch not giving it up? Whatchu so happy about girlllllll???
She was eventually busted, and after serving 20 years in prison, Ilse was founded dead in her cell, hanging. Damn.
You don’t really hear about rich bitches having human skins placed all over the house for decoration; it’s always Jeffery Dammers or Gary Heidniks. But I bet with how perverted some ladies mind’s are, more women have probably done as bad, or worse.
I read this shit and I think, “Thank god for the Swellco & Swellco Video Process.”
