During ww2 an estimated 100,000 men were arrested as homosexuals. An estimated 5,000 to 15,000 of those were imprisoned in Nazi concentration camps to die. Leading scholar Rüdiger Lautmann believes that the death rate of homosexuals in concentration camps may have been as high as 60%. Homosexuals in the camps suffered an unusual degree of cruelty by their captors. These estimates include only individuals singled out for their sexual orientation.
After the war, homosexual women and men were re-arrested and imprisoned based on evidence found during the Nazi years. ((Had a lot of fun making this for my history class, Pls don’t hash me too hard on my skill I’m trying my best)) lgbt ww2 artistsoninstagram watercolor lgbtart
