This Holocaust Education Month, Federation's Shoah Committee is showcasing "Pink Triangle Legacies: Coming out of the Shadows of the Holocaust", the latest book by Dr. Jake Newsome. This crucial work charts the historical transformation of the pink triangle from a symbol in Nazi concentration camps to an emblem of queer liberation and pride and gives voice to the experiences of LGBTQ+ Holocaust survivors.
Join us online for an interactive conversation with the author on Wednesday, November 16th at 7pm.
Registration page forthcoming.
“Newsome illuminates how LGBTQ people recovered the history of the Nazi persecution of homosexuals and stood it on its head, transforming the fascists’ symbol of shame into a liberation banner. A fascinating, important study.” Jonathan Ned Kaz
