This web page is in
memory of gay who were killed in the Nazi death camps. Many people are unaware of the deep Nazi hatred of gay people. Gay men were required to wear a pink triangle. The pink triangle is now a common symbol representing gay men.
Conditions in the Nazi death camps were terrible for everybody. Gay people may have been subjected to rejection and ridicule from other people who were living in the death camps.
