Irma Grese was a German Nazi concentration camp guard during the Second World War as part of SS. She became notorious for torturing the concentration camp prisoners, and got the nickname ‘the Hyena of Auschwitz’. Once the war was over, she was tried for the crimes she committed against humanity. Born in Wrechen, she faced troublesome relationship with her parents, as they had a very unhappy marriage. What scarred Irma more than anything was the fact that her mother committed suicide by drinking acid due to extra marital affairs of her husband. For a 13 year old Irma, this event was troublesome and scarred her for an entire lifetime. Her resonance with Nazi party started young and she unofficially joined it at the age of 14, after dropping out of school and by the age of 19, she became a prison guard at a concentration camp in Ravensbruck, and later she got promoted as the warden at Bergen-Belsen and Auschwitz and was given the duty of choosing the prisoners to kill. She remains a notorious figure for her taste of enjoying the tortures and killing of prisoners in the most brutal ways possible and abusing them sexually.
