When the Nazi concentration camps were liberated by the Allies, it was a time of great jubilation for the tens of thousands of people incarcerated in them. But an often forgotten fact of this time is that prisoners who happened to be wearing the pink triangle (the Nazis’ way of marking and identifying homosexuals) were forced to serve out the rest of their sentence. This was due to a part of German law simply known as “Paragraph 175” which criminalized homosexuality. The law wasn’t repealed until 1969.
There’s an amazing documentary on this called “Paragraph 175,” you can watch it on YouTube HERE, but a great deal of it is in German and I can’t find a free stream with English subtitles.
They don’t tell you anything about that in History class.
