There is also a joint suicide by cyanide capsule of a guard and his inmate lover just before they are forced to make love before the entire camp. Meanwhile the commandant develops an infatuation with a particular inmate, Tanya Noble, who he was in love with before the war and who rejected him.in favor of another man, who is later murdered on the orders of the commandant. After initially attempting to starve herself, she feigns falling in love with him. However, following an evening together in the commandant's bedroom, he reveals his plan to escape to South America and in an act of revenge, Tanya severs his manhood using a hidden razor blade in her vagina during their love making. During the film's climax whilst allowing the other inmates to escape, she guns down a group of SS guards, only to then be shot herself by one of the fatally wounded guards.
