Nazi Persecution of Homosexuals 1933-1945
October 30 to December 4, 2013

This acclaimed exhibit explores the Third Reich’s efforts at destroying all internal biological threats to the “Aryan” nation’s health, including homosexual males. Thousands of men were arrested and interned in prisons and concentration camps, leading to the imprisonment and deaths of thousands of homosexual males.

Nazi Persecution of Homosexuals 1933 – 1945 was produced by the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.

The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum’s exhibitions program is supported in part by the Lester Robbins and Sheila Johnson Robbins Traveling and Special Exhibitions Fund established in 1990.

Exhibition and School Program is co-presented by the VHEC and Egale Canada Human Rights Trust.
