My proposal for the Collins Library...

Everyone's seen this by now, right?

The Stalags were practically the only pornography available in the Israeli society of the early 1960s, which was almost puritanical. They faded out almost as suddenly as they had appeared. Two years after the first edition was snatched up from kiosks around the central bus station in Tel Aviv, an Israeli court found the publishers guilty of disseminating pornography. The most famous Stalag, “I Was Colonel Schultz’s Private Bitch,” was deemed to have crossed all the lines of acceptability, prompting the police to try to hunt every copy down.

Holy crap that is amazing. Might even be better than the Chasidic spy novels out of Boro Park (I have one, but my Yiddish is nowhere near good enough to decipher it properly...)
