Four book covers inspired from the “Salome sequence” of the controversial film The Night Porter (“Il portiere di notte”, Liliana Cavani, 1974). The Charlotte Rampling character, Lucia Atherton – a concentration camp survivor who has a sadomasochistic relationship with the former Nazi SS officer Maximilian Theo Atdorfer (Dirk Bogarde) – has become the symbol of the eroticization of the Holocaust, and has heavily inspired the subsequent Nazi-Sexploitation cinema mostly produced in Italy in the late 1970s.
