Public humiliation was often the go-to weapon of the Nazi Party to persuade the public to follow their ideals. This woman here was shamed and punished publicily for having a relationship with someone the State considered untermensch, or subhuman—most likely Jewish.After this photograph was taken, the officials most likely shaved her head and stripped her to her undergarments.

For having a relationship with someone who the Nazi’s considered untermensch (subhuman), she was punished publicly. It’s very reminiscent of the French and Dutch resistance sought to do their countrymen who had collaborated with their German occupiers.
