Memorial to the Homosexuals Persecuted Under the National Socialist Regime, Berlin

Monument
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.

  • This memorial is quite unassuming and is not very well signed but it is worth seeking out. There is a small window through which a short film can be viewed.  more »
