Article publié le 7 February 2023

From 16 February to 10 December 2023 at the Kazerne Dossin

The exhibition presents a little-known aspect of the Second World War: the fate of homosexuals in various countries such as Belgium, France, the Netherlands and Germany. Numerous unpublished documents illustrate the persecution suffered by homosexual men and women under the Nazi regime. In Germany, 100,000 homosexuals were registered, half of whom were sentenced and between 5,000 and 15,000 sent to concentration camps.
