The article comments on various films including "SS Experiment," "SS Hell Camp," and "SS Extermination Camp" constituting the behaviors of Jewish girls in providing sexual favors to Nazi troops in Germany. The said films exploited to accommodate as many titillations, such as a lot of group stripping, a sadistic lesbian warden, naked body torture, and plenty of the obligatory sex scenes. Moreover, it explores the use of the Holocaust, the sacred event, as a background for the sexual gratification of viewers.
