Touring Exhibit Sheds Light on Nazi War Crimes Against Gay Men [AUDIO]
ST. CLOUD – A nationally-touring exhibit from the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington D.C. will spend over a month on display at St. Cloud State University.
The exhibit, entitled “The Nazi Persecution of Homosexuals 1933-1945,” turns focus to a less-studied dimension of Nazi Germany.
Each of the displays include photographs, artwork, historical and personal accounts of the ruthless Nazi treatment of gay men.
Dr. Dan Wildeson is the Director for the Center for Holocaust and Genocide Education at SCSU. He says contemporary society stands to learn a lot by examining Nazi genocide.
Wildeson says the exhibit is highly sought and has been traveling the country for many years.
“The Nazi Persecution of Homosexuals 1933-1945″ will be on display in the Atwood Memorial Center Gallery until February 23rd.
It’s free and open to the public.
