    The Nachrichten für die Truppe airdropped newspaper often had a page 3 girl sourced from various places. Could be a typical publicity photo of an actress like Marte Harell or a more a exotic image from an art magazine. But they were not like the typical softporn pin-ups used on German leaflets dropped on Allied troops.

    These were rather typical. Especially the actresses were popular.
    German society maintained highest moral standards in that era - in other words: they were quite prudish and inhibited ;-)

    Catalogue ref: INF 3/1774 Links to the Catalogue
    Image for a series illustrating life under Nazi rule, depicting a line of German girl gymnasts. Capturing the Aryan ideal of health, strength, beauty, those living under Nazi rule were expected to partake in ‘Strength through Joy', which included sports training, in order to contribute more productively to German life."
