Nazi Persecution of Homosexuals, 1933–1945, an exhibit produced by the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, examines the Nazi regime’s maleficent attempt to eradicate homosexuality, which left thousands dead and shattered the lives of many more. The exhibit memorializes those tortured, murdered and denied justice at the hands of their oppressors, and shines a light on the courage of a generation of LGBTQ-identified men and women who fought, loved, endured, lived and died during a dark and terrible time.

The Center is proud to welcome this exhibition, on loan from the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. “We’re so pleased that the Museum reached out to us,” said Center Project Director Vanessa Shelmandine. “We see this partnership not just as an honor, but as a moment to honor our own past – and as an opportunity educate our allies and community about a lesser-known time in LGBTQ history”. The exhibit will be on display in Apuzzo Hall, the Center’s first-floor gallery, from June 20 – August 14, 2013. It will be available for independent viewing during normal Center hours, 9:30 am – 5 pm Monday through Friday, and for docent-guided tours at regular intervals. For information, call the Center at 845-331-5300, or find out more about the Exhibit.
