WWII POW’s enjoyed strip shows from local women in Nazi-run castle – PaintBallBeam.com

WORLD War Two prisoners at Colditz Castle regularly enjoyed strip shows from local women, a book says.

Sex-starved inmates at the notorious POW camp watched on as the females willingly removed their clothes.

German officers and guards were apparently unaware of the locals helping prisoners endure captivity.

The town of Colditz is so close to the castle that the women could be seen in their bedrooms undressing for the delighted POWs.

Some also sunbathed in view of the castle to give men something else to smile about.

Author and ­historian Ben Macintyre reveals in his book Colditz: Prisoners of the Castle that women “obligingly” and “knowingly” set pulses racing by stripping.

He said: “The prisoners’ repressed sexual urges were coped with in ways both obvious and innovative.

“Women down in the town, some of whom obligingly, and perhaps knowingly, undressed in front of their windows or sunbathed in the open.”

But some British POWs supposedly put together a makeshift telescope to get a better view.

Macintyre added: “One frustrated inventor came up with the ‘lecherscope’, a homemade telescope that could be used to ogle women.”

But he added some prisoners “tried to make light of their sexual frustrations, mocking them or pretending they did not exist.”

The subject of a BBC drama series in the 1970s, Colditz in Saxony, Germany, was one of the most famous POW camps in World War Two.

It housed POWs who had a record of escape attempts from other camps because the Germans — mistakenly — thought it was escape-proof.
