A Brothel in a Shul?

Jezebel has a recent post about depictions of sex workers:
Laura Agustin is concerned that all sex worker news is inevitably accompanied by pictures of street prostitution rather than brothels or red light districts, so she has created an album of alternate pictures.

Worthy cause. Unfortunately, here’s one of the pictures Agustin found:brothel.jpg

These are German soldiers in 1940 visiting a brothel in what looks to me like a synagogue. Anyone else’s gag reflex working overtime right now? More nauseating pics here.
