Pornography and the Holocaust AKA Stalags (2008) Ari Libsker

Pornography and the Holocaust (2008)
Documentary film about pornographic Stalag fiction books popular in Israel until the time of the Adolf Eichmann trial.

In early-1960s Israel pornographic, possibly anti-Semitic novels that detailed sensational tales of the torture and rape of male concentration camp prisoners by curvaceous female Nazi guards rapidly rose from marginal pulp reading to mass-market popularity.

Ari Libsker’s documentary “Stalags” is named for these pocket-size books, which were written under American pseudonyms in a style that suggested translation. (They were in fact done in Hebrew by Israeli writers, some of whom appear on screen.) The film examines the rise and fall of this short-lived craze and the doors it opened for discussing the Holocaust, a previously hush-hush subject in Israel.

The film also considers possible inspirations for the Stalags, from the 1961 trial of the high-ranking Nazi Adolf Eichmann, which exposed sexual abuse within concentration camps, to the works of K. Tzetnik, a Holocaust historian or fabricator, depending on whom you ask. (His books recounted similar atrocities.)

Preceding “Stalags” is Roee Rosen’s “Two Women and a Man,” an intriguing 16 minutes of trickery that offer a seemingly biographical portrait of a female artist and writer, and is a warm-up exercise in how society perceives indecency. “Stalags” carries this line of inquiry forward, cramming an overwhelming amount of information and ideas into its 63 minutes — not nearly enough time to explore satisfactorily all that it raises.
