Previously known as The Pink Triangle, this is another fine documentary from the makers of The Celluloid Closet, Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman. By the fall of the Berlin Wall, only ten of the tens of thousands of gay men detained by the Nazis were left alive (lesbians were not subjected to such energetic oppression). Recalling the good old days of Weimar decadence and the living hell of the camps, these unassuming survivors piece together a genuinely moving "forgotten history" of the persecution that, like that of Romanies, has received nowhere near as much media or historical attention as the Jewish Holocaust.
