Rock Street, San Francisco

Ilse Koch was known as the most notorious German war criminal. It is
hard to imagine that a girl people remember as a sweet, loving little girl
could turn into a horrific Nazi. What got her interested in the SS was the fact
that she met her husband Carl Otto Koch there. Ilse Koch was a sadist and a
nymphomaniac other word known for a tramp. Koch was one of the worst Nazis out
there. She would torment Jews in the concentration camps by walking around
without any clothes on and if anyone were to look her way she would beat them.
What really horrified most was that Koch would create lamp shades out of human
skin. She would order the men with tattoos to line up against a wall with no
clothes. Then she would proceed to walk along them and when she spotted a
tattoo she liked, Koch would tap it with her riding crop, a whip she usually
carried along. Then that man would have been taken away by the guards and put
in the hospital, where the doctors peeled of the tattoo. Soon enough when she
gathered enough skin shades, she would have created her own lamps. The skin
would sometimes be used as gloves or even book covers as well.  After the death of her husband and World War 2
ended, Ilse Koch moved away with her children knowing she would be caught
sooner or later. The strange thing was that she never went into hiding.
Especially after all the crimes she committed it was hard to believe she didn’t
try to escape. It was easier that way for the prisoners that did escape, to find
her faster. She was caught and arrested, which ended her being in Jail. Ilse
Koch was charged with multiple crimes, that involved abusing the prisoners and
cutting off their skin for items. Ilse Koch was sentenced to life in prison.
Sadly, she had her sentence reduced with the help of the U.S. military. She was
released on October 17th, 1949 only to be arrested by the West
German Government for abusing the prisoners. She was sentenced to life in
prison once again and could no longer stand being in jail, so she had hung
herself in her cell in 1967.
