Item Details

Before the rise of the Nazi party, Germany, especially Berlin, was one of the most tolerant places for homosexuals in the world. But that all changed when the Nazis came to power. The pink triangle sewn onto prison uniforms became the symbol of the persecution of homosexuals, a persecution that would continue for many years after the war. A mix of historical research, first-person accounts and individual stories brings this time to life for young readers.

A brief (very brief) account of the treatment of gays by the Nazi's during their regime. Sadly, very little is known about this persecution because even after the fall of the Nazi's, being gay was still considered a crime. It wasn't until the 70's that men finally "came out" and told their story. Pretty heartbreaking at times.
