Not quite that surprising. Where I'm from, everyone knows about concentration camps in general, and about Auschwitz. Dachau is... not general knowledge here, I believe. Also, my bet is that Fiona makes an accidental pass (or something that registers to Sara as such) during the movie. The myth of American Sleepover
does not seem like a comedy, awright. Doesn't seem like a mind-screw movie, either.

I've actually thought about doing a gay romance fic as a writing exercise, both for the fandom the author was involved in, and for the Bulletstorm FPS, but I'm worried that any romance or sex scene I'd write would come off as IKEA Erotica.
What is IKEA Erotica? Sounds like something Swedish and cheap. (Fun fact: A common Finnish stereotype about Swedes can be summed into a joke:
How many Swedish straight men does it take to change a light bulb?
Both of them.
Yeah, I did not say it's a funny joke.)

Hitler's Final Solution was their final chance at romance.
Adam Lambert and Justin Bieber star in "The Bois in the Striped Pajamas".
Tagline: You are being foolish, we have ways of making you love.(said in a German accent)
I laughed out loud at this. Does that make me a bad person? I guess it does.
That being said, I have seen neither Brokeback Mountain nor Schindler's list but I think I might watch a cross between them.
One last thing.

How so? According to my memory, and Wikipedia agrees, Dachau was not a death camp. Apparently it was the first, but hardly the worst.
According to Wikipedia, in Dachau
(both main camp and subcamps) over 35 000 people died.
, which was the largest concentration camp, the estimated figure is 1,1 million.
Yes, any concentration camp, and existence thereof, is terrifying, but Dachau was hardly the worst.
