Beginning in 1942 at Mauthausen and continuing through the end of the war, the Nazis decided that forced labor prisoners would work harder if they were promised sex at the end of the day. To pursue this hope, they set up 10 brothels that offered up to 200 women inmates. Jews were not allowed to participate, nor were Soviet prisoners of war.
