New Read [ Branded by the Pink Triangle] by [ Ken Setterington ]For Kindle ePUB or eBook – grisedalelodge.co.uk

Branded by the Pink Triangle 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 and 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 homosexuals, a persecution that would continue for many years after the war A mix of historical research, first person accounts, and individual stories bring this time to life for readers Stories of bravery in the face of inhuman cruelty, friendship found in the depths of despair in the camps, and the perseverance of the human spirit will both educate and inspire.

  3. 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 suffered.This 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 cleve 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 suffered.This 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 farhuman 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 abou...

  6. When I searched for books about the persecution of homosexuals in the holocaust, I got a list of eight books Even with the others that didn t make it into computer programming, i can assure you the number of books recognizing Jewish victims of the holocaust is significantly greater I ve been studying the effect it had on the Jewish community for six years now and believe me, I am so relieved that each of those stories are here But what of the others Why is the fate of so many homosexuals, Ro When I searched for books about the persecution of homosexuals in the holocaust, I got a list of eight books Even with the others that didn t make it into computer programming, i can assure you the number of books recognizing Jewish victims of the holocaust is significantly greater I ve been studying the effect it had on the Jewish community for six years now and believe me, I am so relieved that each of those stories are here But what of the others Why is the fate of so many homosexuals, Roma s, and any other Nazi offenders not given the attention that it deserves I m horrified at finding that homosexuals weren t even recognized as victims of the holocaust until 2001, and that the rules of Paragraph 175 as they were during the Reich continued to restrict homosexual individuals in west Germany until 1969 And now it s late, most of the stories that should ve been told will remain untold But, here s this book Here s this man who knows what it is to be discriminated against for his s...

It s hard sometimes to see just how far we ve come unless we know where we ve been The rise of Nazism saw the rise of hate and the scapegoating of people who were seen as different In all the history taught in school, the persecution of the LGBTQ population is most frequently left out Even in ourenlightened age talking about the lives of gay men is still a taboo subject for far too many This is an excellent introduction to the atrocities inflicted on gay men by the Nazis during WWII an It s hard sometimes to see just how far we ve come unless we know where we ve been The rise of Nazism saw the rise of hate and the scapegoating of people who were seen as different In all the history taught in school, the persecution of the LGBTQ population is most frequently left out Even in ourenlightened age talking about the lives of gay men is still a taboo subject for...
