"Only for SS" reads this sign in both German and Dutch. Posted on the door of Hitler's Nijmegen "baby factory" ensuring that only the SS troops were admitted as they were considered to meet Hitler's image of the "ideal" Aryan man.
   SS troops and selected Aryan women were briefly paired up, without the inconvenience of marriage or family, to produce children for the Third Reich.
