In SS Lager 5 - L'inferno delle donne (1976) she has a really GREAT role! She plays Magda, the woman who runs bordello in the concentration camp. She appears in many scenes and has much dialogue!

She even gets to be a little sexy!

In Lager SSadis Kastrat Kommandantur (1976) she plays Magda, the madam who runs the bordello in the concentration camp. It's the same as the role she played in SS Lager 5: L'inferno delle donne, only this time the role is a little smaller.
