45-year-old wife of camp commandant and human-skin-handywoman Ilse Koch, originally Margarete Ilse Köhler aka Die Hexe von Buchenwald aka Die Buchenwälder Schlampe is sentenced to life imprisonment in Augsburg, Bayern, Germany.

At least four separate witnesses for the prosecution testified that they had seen Koch choose tattooed prisoners, who were then killed, or had seen or been involved in the process of making human-skin lampshades from tattooed skin. However, this charge was dropped by the prosecution when they could not prove lampshades or any other items were actually made from human skin.
