Holocaust pornography

Holocaust pornography, also known as Nazi porn,[1] was a type of pornography mostly made by and for people living in Israel and makes pornography out of real or fantasy events concerning the Holocaust.[2]

It came about following the 1955 publication of House of Dolls. The terror of the Holocaust is re-enacted in staged photographs and in films. The images and tapes, although grainy and black-and-white, are clearly contemporary.

The combination of pornography and the Holocaust also appears in canonic Holocaust literature as an extreme part of its modern-day representation.[3] Thematically, the Nazi exploitation genre can also be influenced by other so-called exploitative media, often called mondo films, which focus on gruesome death footage and other taboo subject matter, such as the Faces of Death series.
