Pride Month: The Nazi Persecution of Gay People
WHEN: Wednesday, June 3, 9:30 a.m. ET
Join Museum experts for a Facebook Live episode that gives voice to a community silenced during the Holocaust.
Before the Nazis came to power, Berlin was home to a vibrant gay community. Within weeks of their party’s rise in March 1933, the Nazis drove this population underground and waged a violent campaign against homosexuality.
Watch live at facebook.com/holocaustmuseum and join in the conversation.
You do not need a Facebook account to view our program. After the live broadcast, it will be available to watch on demand on the Museum’s Facebook page.
