Had to read this and a few other gay holocaust victim books. So sad and fascinating.
That Lesbian and Gay victims of the Holocaust, and the few survivors, were overlooked by history that makes me so angry. It’s appalling!
I didn’t learn about this in any history class at school. We learned that the Nazis rounded up Jews, and that was it! I only learned about the Pink Triangle after I came out and started doing my own research into LGBT history.
THIS is the reason we have Gay Pride celebrations. Pride celebrations are about strength, community and most of all, visibility. We want our history recorded. We want LGBT youth to know that they are not alone. We want them to know that they are valuable members of society and no matter how bad they might have it today, things WILL get better.
