Exhibit on Persecution of Gay Men in the Holocaust Comes to New Hampshire

PFLAG New Hampshire and Regional Director Roberta Barry have worked with other local groups for two years to bring a traveling exhibit titled “Nazi Persecution of Homosexuals 1933-1945” to Keene State College. The exhibit tells the story of the Nazi government’s persecution of German gay men during the Holocaust. Through reproductions of historic pictures and documents the exhibit explores the rationale, means, and impact of the Nazi regime's mission to eradicate homosexuality that resulted in thousands of deaths. The exhibit from the National Holocaust Memorial Museum is free and open to the public through February 9.
