Book Burning Memorial
'In the center of Bebelplatz, a glass window showing rows and rows of empty bookshelves. The memorial commemorates the night in 1933 when 20,000 “anti-German” books were burned here under the instigation of Goebbels. There's a plaque nearby that says something like “Where they burn books, they will also burn humans in the end.” '
Interesting but rarely mentioned: most of the content burned that night came from the Institut für Sexualwissenschaft (institute for the science of sex) headed by Magnus Hirschfeld. The institute and Hirshfeld himself were some of the first to openly campaign for the right to have sex with someone of the same gender, the right to transition if you did not identify with your birth sex and for the general acceptance of queer people. The team had already performed the first SRS operations in Germany and in addition, the institute advocated sex education, contraception, the treatment of sexually transmitted diseases, and women’s emancipation.
Photographs of the night of the book burning are plastered across history books world wide, but the queer movement that was destroyed that night often goes unmentioned.
reblogging again for that^
The fact that the Nazi filth targeted queer and trans people is often very deliberately erased
Because you know, if it wasn’t people would have to actually admit that bigotry against LGBTQI people is WRONG and those who support the oppression and persecution of the LGBTQI community would have to admit that they hold the same opinions and views as the Nazi’s
Another little fact ‘conveniently’ forgotten in history classes: the fact that LGBTQI survivors of concentration camps were put BACK IN PRISON after the camps were ‘liberated’
