Stalags (Hebrew: סטאלגים, Stalagim, also known in English as Stalags: Holocaust and Pornography in Israel) is a 2008 documentary film produced by Barak Heymann and directed by Ari Libsker. The film examines the history of Stalags, pornography books that featured sexy female Nazi officers sexually abusing camp prisoners. The pocket books broke sales records and sold hundreds of thousands of copies in Israel in the 1960s during the trial of Adolf Eichmann. After the authors of the books were accused of distributing anti-Semitic pornography, the popularity of the books declined. The documentary opened in limited release on April 9, 2008.
