Nazi Persecution of Homosexuals Exhibit

The Holocaust Center, Seattle Men’s Chorus, The Pride Foundation, and The Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle are bringing a unique opportunity to Seattle at the end of March: an exhibit that tells the little known story of the persecution of the gay community during the Nazi Era.

The exhibit, Nazi Persecution of Homosexuals 1933-1945, will be on display at Seattle’s McCaw Hall from Wednesday, March 30 to Sunday, April 3.

Denounced as "antisocial parasites" and "enemies of the state," more than 100,000 men were arrested under a broadly interpreted law against homosexuality. This exhibit highlights the campaign against this particular group, and recognizes the unique adversity they faced under the Nazi regime.

This exhibit was produced by the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington D.C. It will be shown in conjunction with the Seattle Men’s Chorus performance, Falling in Love Again, a love story between two men during the Nazi Era, Saturday, April 2 and Sunday, April 3.

March 30 - April 3, 2011 | Noon - 10:00pm

Sunday, April 3 | Noon-5:00pm McCaw Hall at Seattle Center
