Under the Nazi system, Irma was trained to function as a state serial killer, but in the end began to kill for her own hedonistic needs. She had a dark compulsion to torture and kill inmates in her charge and became so excessively homicidal that even male SS guards began to complain. She was hung by the British on December 13th 1945."
