Has anybody heard about Violette Morris a.k.a Nazis' 'Hyena'. I've read the story about her a few weeks ago, and here's the photo:

Never heard of this person before but I did a quick check.

Gruesome.

When I look at these photos I'm beginning to understand why Hitler was obsessed with improving the human race (he was a painter, so he had an aesthetic sense) and many citizens supported this idea... Lotte Koch actually looks better than most in these photos.

Did you not read Vikki's thoughtful replies to canncocker and others on this matter?
viewtopic.php?p=1241280#p1241280
Are you saying that it was Hitler's superior aesthetic sense that led him to "improve the human race" by the murder of millions?
Are you saying that had Hitler met any of these so called "homely" women, they would have been sacked from their jobs for failing to live up to some aesthetic ideal?
OK - probably not, but think about what you say.

Hitler had much to answer for, but even he was not so shallow as to put so much emphasis on good looks in the way that you seem to.

It was a rather ironic comment. But the fact is that many of these women look terrible in my opinion. Maybe it's the fault of these uniforms? I have the impression that most women on the street do not look so terrible. In any case, it would be better to give photos of girls from the organization Glaube und Schönheit. And if you ask if there was an important look for Hitler, as far as I know, yes, but he was still talking about the boys. Although in the manual of tankers they explained that a woman can not be too high or too low (if you know what I'm talking about :wink: ).

Are you always so deliberately provocative or only on the subject of women?
What makes you think that the women you disapprove of were not former Glaube und Schönheit girls?
Indeed I don't know what your Tanker quote is about but no doubt it is inappropriate here, as is most of what you have to contribute.

Do not you know Elvira Tiger? Irrelevant. I see that since the forum is about German army, some become so serious as Germans in a stereotype (although this manual for the tankers was funny and there were a lot of comments about women). German soldiers, however, were worse, because Bertha Krupp was not fat at all and looking at photos from her youth, it is difficult to judge her badly, but the soldiers called a thick howitzer by her name. But it will be better to speak only on serious topics.
PS
Do not watch the movie 'Allo' Allo! because I'm sure this humor will upset you.

Gulo, there's no real proof of the "dicke" actually refers to frau Krupp and looking at pictures of her I would say she if fairly "normal" in build. And more important for the NS movevement, she was a mother of several children. I don't think women in the reich (interior) were considered as being sexual objects. They were "homely" as you stated. This was their primary role. Someone once said "kitchen, children, church", which I would understand as (later in history) the home, reproduction and devotion to the NS movement and party. I am aware of "Elvira" but she's a comic figure meant for young men! I doubt the "fibel" would have been as popular as it was if the female figure had been a "motherly" version.
Not sure but I don't evem think there were military brothels inside Germany. Again, this was not the "job" for german women, thos was not how she was and more important should be viewed. A different matter in occupied territories.

I am in no way an anti feminist or male chauvinist and hope my post will not be considered as such. I am merely airing some views and thought of my own on how these "helferinnen" should be viewed.

Some facts on the views and ideals of women, makeup etc. which might be interesting. Just remember the source is "wiki"... ;) https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Women_i ... nine_ideal
