Memorial to the Homosexuals Persecuted Under the National Socialist Regime brings to light an oft-forgotten aspect of the Nazi regime's rule. Homosexual victims of World War II in Germany were not recognized until the 1980s--long after the end of the war. This memorial, which opened to the public in 2008, is an intriguing cube with a small window, designed by artists Michael Elmgreen and Ingar Dragset. Peer through the window to see a film of two men kissing, a tribute to those tormented and outlawed by the Nazi government.

  • Easily located near the other memorials, this poignant reminder is both clever and beautiful. You could easily stand here for ages. The only downside is that it isn't readily marked so people could mi...  more »
  • It doesn't look like much of the world but a must for all. A little obliquely monument in the Park. Not so handsome, but a reminder of how terribly we can behave towards each other. Tearful.

  • The Memorial to homosexuals persecuted under Nazism was opened on May 27, 2008. The cuboid is made of concrete. There is a window, through which visitors can see a film short two men kissing in the front side of the cuboid.

  • Cube like structure made of stone to commemorate the homesexual victims of the Nazism. Pretty forest and zone and if you take a closer look it has even got a video!
  • This place is a bit hard to find, it is near the Murdered Jews Memorial. I absolutely loved this place, even though it's a single stone. There is a video you can see by a window in the stone, where you can see happy gay and lesbian couples kissing, which is really powerful and heartwarming.
  • Pink triangle: Reminder of gay persecution under Nazi rule. Through the viewing portal are moving images of gay men & lesbians in loving encounter.
  • I believe it's very correct that they put a memorial on all nazis' victims
  • A moving memorial to people persecuted thrice - once by the Nazis, once after the end of the war, and once by the history books. Sadly tucked away from view and completely unadvertised at the nearby Holocaust visitor centre, but do make an effort to see it.
