Berlin : homosexual capital of Europe -- The rise of the Nazis -- The gay life is over -- The master race : the Nazi plan to rid Germany of the inferior -- Death through work : imprisonment in the concentration camps -- Nazis in occupied territories -- Jewish homosexuals -- Aftermath -- Recognition at last -- The survivors -- It gets better.
Before the rise of the Nazi party, Germany, especially Berlin, was one of the most tolerant places for homosexuals in the world. But that all changed when the Nazis came to power. 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 brings this time to life for young readers.
