The pink triangle the nazi war against homosexuals /

"This is the first comprehensive book to appear in English on the ate of homosexuals in Nazi Germany. The author, a refugee from Nazi Germany, examines the climate and conditions that gave rise to a vicious campaign against Germany's gays, directed by Himmler and his SS - a war that resulted in tens of thousands of arrests and thousands of deaths. In this Nazi crusade, homosexual prisoners were confined to death camps where, forced to wear pink triangles, they constituted the lowest rung in the camp hierarchy. The horror of camp life is revealed through diaries, documents never before translated from the German, and interviews with and letters from survivors. Revealing how the anti-homosexual campaign was conducted, the crackpot homophobic fantasies that fueled it, the men who made it possible, and the men who were its victims, this chilling book sheds light on a corner of contemporary history that has remained hidden in the shadows much too long."--Book cover.
