Based on the latest historical research and recently discovered archives this film retraces the journey of men and women persecuted by the Third Reich because of their sexual orientation. Resetting the social and political context of the 1920s, when European society still "tolerated" homosexuality, this documentary details the mechanisms of repression led by the Nazi regime against this particular group and the horror of the concentration camps as told by those who experienced it first hand.
Thanks to audio testimonies and visual archives from victims originating form Germany, Austria, France, Switzerland, Poland and the Netherlands, this film tells the fate of these homosexuals who had to wear the infamous Pink Triangle sign in the camps and were submitted to humiliation, experiments and cruel treatments. Their story fills the black book of suffering among the Nazi Victims and sheds light on this long silenced memory.
