LGBTQ in Nazi Germany

Illinois Holocaust Museum & Education Center Designed for teachers instructing Grades 6-12.

Prior to 1933, Berlin was home to a visible and vibrant LGBTQ community. Under the Nazi regime, LGBTQ people became targets of persecution, imprisonment, and murder. In this workshop, educators will learn more about LGBTQ history and use primary source documents and eyewitness testimony to explore larger themes including the role of the German public in denouncements, LGBTQ experiences in the camps, and the struggle for freedom after liberation.
