book Ô Branded by the Pink Triangle Æ Ken Setterington

Before the rise of the Nazi party Germany especially Berlin was one of the most tolerant places for homosexuals in the world Activists including Thomas Mann and Albert Einstein campaigned openly for the rights of gay men and women and tried to repeal the old existing law against homosexuality But all that would change when the Nazis came to power a We all rightfully know about the persecution of Jews under Nazi rule but the sorry secret of Germany's past that has been swept under the carpet for years is the horror that was also inflicted upon gay men This book asks us to remember how they sufferedThis is probably one of the best non fiction books I've read in that it's made accessible and very readable so that it completely avoids the trap of feeling dull or dry and yet without ever dumbing down its content Setterington also cleverly chooses to make the events relatable on a far human level by focussing largely on specific men's experiences rather than merely the cold hard facts It's not a book about faceless statistics numbers and dates; it's a book about real people; their lives their loves and their lossesI felt uite emotional at several points throughout this and was so enthralled I ended up reading it all in a single sitting I was of course aware that gay people weren't considered a desirable part of Hitler's 'master race' but am now ashamed to say I had no idea just how brutally they suffered both during Nazi occupation and heartbreakingly in the aftermath of the seeming liberation that proved to be anything but for gay men It's a poignant rallying call to remember our past and yet a hopeful look towards an increasingly better future

Branded by the Pink Triangle Nd existence for gay people turned into one of fear Raids arrests prison sentences and expulsions became the daily reality When the concentration camps were built homosexuals were imprisoned along with Jews and any other groups the Nazis wanted to suppress The pink triangle sewn onto prison uniforms became the symbol of the persecution of homosexua It is a nice book to start reading about what happen to gay men during WWII It is short it doesn't go that deep into the things it talks about I found it a bit confusing at times so it was nice that they added a chronology of events at the end of the book This part of history always gets erased I didn't talk about it at school I rarely see it written or talked about It is important not to forget how these brave men fought and tried to survive
