  • ""Historian Klaus Müller interviews survivors of the Nazi persecution of homosexuals because of the German Penal Code of 1871, Paragraph 175. By the 1920's, Berlin had become known as a homosexual Eden, where gay men and lesbians lived relatively open lives amidst an exciting subculture of artists and intellectuals. With the coming to power of the Nazis, all this changed. Between 1933 and 1945 100,000 men were arrested for homosexuality under Paragraph 175, the sodomy provision of the German penal code dating back to 1871. Some were imprisoned, others were sent to concentration camps. Of the latter, only about 4,000 survived. Today, fewer than ten of these men are known to be living. Five of them have now come forward to tell their stories for the first time in this powerful new film. The Nazi persecution of homosexuals may be the last untold story of the Third Reich. Paragraph 175 fills a crucial gap in the historical record, and reveals the lasting consequences of this hidden chapter of 20th century history, as told through personal stories of men and women who lived through it: the half Jewish gay resistance fighter who spent the war helping refugees in Berlin; the Jewish lesbian who escaped to England with the help of a woman she had a crush on; the German Christian photographer who was arrested and imprisoned for homosexuality, then joined the army on his release because he 'wanted to be with men;' the French Alsatian teenager who watched as his lover was tortured and murdered in the camps"--Internet movie database, as viewed on January 3, 2007. Includes footage of and interviews with: Klaus Müller, Karl Gorath, Pierre Seel, Heinz F., Annette Eick, Albrecht Becker, Gad Beck, and Heinz Dörmer."

  • "È un documentario che raccoglie la testimonianza di diversi uomini e donne che furono arrestati dai nazisti per omosessualità in base al paragrafo 175, la legge contro la sodomia del codice penale tedesco, che risaliva nella prima stesura al 1871, e che fu inasprito dai nazisti. Tra il 1933 e il 1945, 100.000 persone furono arrestate in base al paragrafo 175. Alcuni di essi vennero imprigionati, altri mandati in campo di concentramento. Solo 4.000 sopravvissero. Nel 2000 si sapevano ancora in vita meno di dieci di questi uomini e cinque di loro uscirono allo scoperto nel documentario raccontando per la prima volta le loro storie, considerate le ultime del Terzo Reich rimaste ancora sconosciute."

Zwischen 1933-45 wurden ca. 100.000 Männer aufgrund ihrer Homosexualität verhaftet. 10-15.000 von ihnen kamen in Konzentrationslager, nur knapp 4.000 überlebten.

Zwischen 1933-45 wurden ca. 100.000 Männer aufgrund ihrer Homosexualität verhaftet. 10-15.000 von ihnen kamen in Konzentrationslager, nur knapp 4.000 überlebten. Bis heute sind diese schwulen Männer nicht als Nazi-Opfer anerkannt. Im Gegenteil: Viele von ihnen wurden in den 50er und 60er Jahren erneut verhaftet. Sie wurden nie rehabilitiert oder entschädigt. Dieser Film setzt ein Zeichen: Zwar spät und nicht aus Deutschland - aber immerhin. Zehn überlebende KZ-Häftlinge, die nach dem Paragraph 175 verurteilt wurden, leben noch. Sechs von ihnen erzählen ihre Geschichte vor der Kamera. Den bekannten, amerikanischen Dokumentarfilmern Rob Epstein und Jeffrey Friedman (The Celluloid Closet) ist erneut ein sehr persönlicher und bewegender Film gelungen, der berechtigterweise den Teddy (schwullesbischer Filmpreis) für den besten Dokumentarfilm auf der diesjährigen (2000) Berlinale erhielt.

  • "This documentary about the Nazi persecution of homosexuals during the Third Reich reveals the lasting consequences of a little known chapter of 20th century history through the personal recollections of six survivors. Between 1933 and 1945 100,000 men were arrested for homosexuality under Paragraph 175, the unenforced sodomy provision of the German penal code dating back to 1871. Some were imprisoned, others were sent to concentration camps. Of the latter, only about 4,000 survived. By the 1920s, Berlin had become known as a homosexual Eden where gay men and lesbians lived relatively open lives amidst a thriving community of artists and intellectuals; however, when the Nazis came to power Paragraph 175 was revived to brutally crush this culture. Combined with archival images and an historical account of gay culture preceding and during the Third Reich the moving testimonies of the now very elderly five men and one women raise provocative questions about memory, history, and identity."@en

  • "Les homosexuels ont été comme tant d'autres les victimes du régime hitlérien. Ils étaient persécutés en vertu du paragraphe 175 du code pénal allemand. Ce paragraphe, datant de 1871, condamnait à la prison "les actes contre nature" entre hommes. Paragraphe 175 donne la parole à des survivants qui nous racontent leur expérience personnelle et les conséquences durables de ce chapitre caché de l'histoire du IIIème Reich."
