Paragraph 175

.

Weimar Germany was a homosexual Eden in the 1920s: gay and lesbian nightclubs and magazines flourished, the first gay-rights movement was born… and then the Nazis came to power. The persecution of homosexuals at the hands of the Nazis is relatively undiscussed. Homosexual victims of the Holocaust were one of the last groups to come forward with their stories.
Using both intimate personal portrayals and a sweeping narrative, PARAGRAPH 175 features elderly homosexual men who vividly describe their experiences during the Nazi era and reveal the long-term consequences of this hidden chapter of history.

    Stuart Klawans, The Nation
  • Heart-stopping ... stirring ... imbued with humanity and unexpected humor.
    Jan Stuart, New York Newsday
  • Exquisitely lyrical.
    Dennis Harvey, Variety
