UND exhibit details Nazi attacks on gay prisoners in concentration camps

Published 02/28/2012, Grand Forks Herald

“Solidarity,” a lithograph of one prisoner supporting another, by German artist Richard Grune, who spent eight years in Nazi concentration camps after being convicted for homosexuality. A black and white photograph of workers in a quarry in the Mauthausen camp, where prisoners, including homosexuals, perished in the Nazi’s “extermination through work” program. All are among images from “Nazi Persecution of Homosexuals, 1933-1945,” a traveling exhibit from the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C., that will open with a 7 p.m. reception Thursday at the UND Memorial Union ballroom.
