On display at The Florida Holocaust Museum: April 30 – July 2, 2017

NaziPersecutionHomosexuals

Between 1933 and 1945, the Nazi German regime promoted racial health policies that sought to eliminate all sources of biological corruption to its dominant “Aryan” race. Among the groups persecuted as threats to the national health were Germany’s homosexual men. Believing them to be carriers of a “degeneracy” that weakened society and hindered population growth, the Nazi state arrested and incarcerated in prisons and concentration camps tens of thousands of German men as a means of terrorizing them into social conformity.

Presented locally by Wells Fargo.

 

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