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 The law wasn’t repealed until 1969.
This should be required learning, internationally.
All throughout schooling, never were we taught anything about other groups being brought to concentration camps. Only the Jewish people.
Actually, I did get taught that they took disabled people and homosexuals to the camps, but I never learnt about Paragraph 175.
