Most evil women in history-Irma Grese

Irma Grese (1923-1945)

Irma Ida Ilse Grese, an employee at the Nazi concentration camps of Ravensbrück, Bergen-Belsen and Auschwitz, was convicted for crimes against humanity at the Belsen Trial and executed at 22 years of age. Although she was very young, Irma Greese, also known as the ‘B*tch of Belsen’ or ‘Beast of Auschwitz,’ was promoted to Senior Supervisor, which was the second highest ranking female in camp of Auschwitz. The accusations against Grese centred on her ill-treatment and murder of those imprisoned at the camps, including setting dogs on inmates, shootings and sadistic beatings with a whip. Witnesses testified that she used both physical and emotional methods to torture the camp’s inmates and enjoyed shooting prisoners in cold blood. They also testified to acts of sadism, beatings and arbitrary shootings of prisoners, savaging of prisoners by her trained and allegedly half-starved dogs, and to her selecting prisoners for the gas chambers. After a fifty-three day trial, she was sentenced to hang.
