Warwick University academic broke German court ruling that protected dead womans reputation
The daughter of a Holocaust survivor has begun a legal battle to protect her deceased mothers reputation from allegations that she had a lesbian relationship with an SS guard.
Earlier this year, a German court ruled that Dr Anna Hájková, associate professor of modern continental European history at Warwick University, had violated the womans postmortem personality rights by publicly claiming that she had a sexual relationship with the Nazi guard while imprisoned in concentration camps.
The womans daughter is now taking further legal action against the academic in Frankfurt for five alleged breaches of the ruling, which the academic denies. Her lawyer says that the maximum fine that the court could impose is 250,000 (about £227,000).
She has also made a complaint to Warwick University, which has begun an investigation into whether Hájkovás conduct towards her fell short of its ethical research standards.
The Jewish woman at the centre of the legal battle, who died 10 years ago, met the Nazi guard after she was transferred to a concentration camp in Hamburg in 1944, her daughters lawyer told the Frankfurt regional court.
The SS guard fell in love with the young woman and imagined that they had a future together after the war, the court heard.

I believe according to U.S. law, any relationship between guard and prisoner, is by definition rape.
Was the guard’s name Ilsa? I thinl I saw the film. Quite artfully done.
Dominance and violence is quite common in lesbian relationships. I could imagine quite a few enjoying being SS prison-camp guards.
It isn’t a relationship if one is a prisoner.
For some reason, I’m reminded of P.J. O’Rourke’s quip that nobody ever had a sexual fantasy about being tied up and ravished by a liberal.
Was the Nazi guard Ilsa, She Wolf of the SS?
lol, you beat me to it with the Ilsa reference! Art films.
Is it an ‘unwritten law’ that in certain circumstances one is expected to do what is necessary to survive?
I am constantly amazed at how many insane social atrocities are committed by left-wing professors. It’s staggering. Professors make up maybe 0.002 percent of the population. Yet they show up in half of these crazy stories.
Yes. Hear hear. What difference does it make if she did have a “relationship”? What’s to be gained by even bringing it up?
There aren’t many other kind.
Anything like “The Night Porter” with Dirk Bogarde and Charlotte Rampling?
Professorships in Chemistry, Physics or Math are DIFFICULT!
Psychology, Education, etc, not so much. These attract the inferior intellects and this explains a lot about why academia is so messed up.
The lady might have been raped but to call it a relationship would indeed slander.
Especially with an SS guard and a Jewish woman. I'm sure that if the nazis had won, after the war the SS guard would've made sure her "lover" went into the crematoria.

why? was there an unwanted pregnancy?
I can't believe some scumbag academic is trying to besmirch her mother's reputation with this garbage.
If the woman’s mother submitted to the sexual depredation of her jailer so she could survive, I salute her eternal memory. She is a hero who beat the Nazis by not being murdered by them. Human beings have been forced to do much worse. It’s the guard’s family who have much to be ashamed of, not the victim’s. The professor who outed the victim is not much better than the perpetrator; end her career immediately.
Is that the one where she’s a pedophile?
