Book: “Branded by the Pink Triangle”
Author: Ken Setterington
Genre: Non-Fiction, Historical
About: I cannot recommend this book enough. It was filled with information and I learned so much about homosexuality during the Nazi reign. The book is easy to read and I would honestly recommend it for mature 12 year olds and up. I learned so much about homosexuality during the Nazi reign.
Something to remember: Paragraph 175 (which made homosexuality illegal in Germany) wasn’t repealed until 1969. Homosexuals were treated as criminals and forced to live out their jail sentences even after concentration camp liberation. Reparations for those wearing Pink Triangles weren’t given until 2001, when most victims were either old or deceased. Hate is not history.
