    1. I think you're right about crap. If Marsha was hung upside down for 7 hours then all the crap would have gone to her head.

      I hope you were wearing your knickers, dear, when you were hanging upside down - I'm sure the SS guards, nor the Jewish inmates for that matter, wanted to see you in all your glory.

    2. Don't worry chum, Marsha was indeed wearing some underclothes when she was strung up by her ankles, because my grandma Esther was hanging upside down right next to her at the time. They were both given a pair of voluminous woollen bloomers to wear so that at least they could retain some dignity while undergoing their punishment.

      My grandma was only sentenced to three and half hours of hanging upside down, so the SS guards cut her down at midday, which meant that she was able to eat her lunchtime rations of rat soup garnished with stinging-nettles.

      But when poor Marsha was cut down later that day, she was in a terrible state - her head had swollen to twice its size and was as purple as a beetroot!
