Gunter Grau (ed.) "Hidden Holocaust? Gay and Lesbian Persecution in Germany 1933-1945" (Cassell, 1995)

Drawing on documents, which were kept in the East German State archives until reunification in 1990, this is a history of the Nazis' attitude toward, and treatment of, homosexuals. It demonstrates that even before the National Socialists took power, the eradication of homosexuals was one of their declared aims. The discrimination took an extreme form, including intimidation, castration, incarceration and extermination in concentration camps. It also details the experience of lesbians, who were not legally recognised and therefore afforded no protection. Many were stigmatised as "asocial" and sent to concentration camps where they were forced to work as prostitutes.
