Munich, Germany has announced a project to build a new memorial to homosexuals killed by the Nazis. Munich’s gay bars were some of the first to be raided in Germany beginning on October 20, 1934, by the Third Reich in an effort to wipe out German gays. An estimated 50,000 gays were arrested by Nazi police and many were eventually put into concentration camps.
The memorial will be in the center of Munich in front of what was once “The Black Fisherman” or “Scwharzfischer” one of the 1930’s most popular gay bars in the city. I recommend going to see it, Munich is awesome and we should remember the pink triangle and those who died for the freedoms we have obtained today.
