But Ravensbrück centre director Insa Eschebach said the at least 200, predominantly German women who were enslaved also endured paralysing trauma, shame and scorn in an until-now largely taboo chapter of European history.Most of the sex workers were taken from the women's camps at Ravensbrück and Auschwitz to ‘brothels’ at 10 camps in Germany and the Nazi-occupied eastern territories."It's about having better relationships," he said.He noted there was no way to verify that employees do not use their hour for other purposes than spending time with their partners or spouses.“They told us we were in the camp brothel, that we were the lucky ones. If we behaved and fulfilled our duties nothing would happen to us.” So begins the wrenching account of Frau W., a prisoner of the Nazi concentration camp Ravensbrück north of Berlin who was forced to work as a sex slave for her fellow detainees.
