Educating about genocide: remembering the pink triangle prisoners of Sachsenhausen

Our starting point in this lecture is the theme for Holocaust Memorial Day 2020 ‘Standing together’. Audiences will be encouraged to reflect on the costs of living in a divided society and how the enforced loss of a safe place to call ‘home’ is part of the trauma faced by anyone experiencing persecution and genocide.

In addition to exploring the narratives of these gay men/bisexual men, the lecture will consider the ways in which homosexuality is seen both in pre and post war Germany. The final part of the lecture will consider the scope and process of teaching and learning from material located in the period 1933-45.

This lecture will be taking place in C49, Dearing Building, Jubilee Campus.

Tickets are free and all are welcome, booking is required. To book tickets or find more information please visit the events official page.
