JOY DIVISION - THE NAZI SEX WORKERS STORY
by Harry Denford


Warning: Contains text of a sensitive nature          
In the 70s and early 80s, the well-known Manchester band, Joy Division, took their name from events had nothing to do with joy. The name comes from forced labour camps in Nazi Germany. In these camps, thousands of young women, Polish Catholic mostly were used as sex slaves for German officers before they went to fight on the Russian front. They were also used by German guards in a odd logic that by providing a pretty women, it would stop the male camp gaurds having any sexual urges towards the male Jewish and homosexual inmates.  Many of these girls shared the same hatred of the Jews as the Nazi's, as they saw them as just having to wait on tables or just clean, not knowing what was really happening in other camps. 

These young girls, known as ‘Feld Hure’ (Field Whores), underwent daily ‘enjoyment duty’ where three bad reports were met with brutal levels of punishment. The question is, in such dire circumstances, do humans take solace in the companionship of others suffering the same fate? Or does an individual’s supposed submission give them greater dominance and a longer shelf life?  We then see the same girls in a brothel today
