Just a comment: Paragraph 175, the law that forbade homosexual relations, wasn't taken off the law books in Germany until the late 1960s. The Nazis committed many, many attrocities and genocide against minorities - unfortunantly, the persecution against homosexuals is similar to Abu Ghraib or Guantanimo Bay as the Nazis used humiliation and "sodomized" their victims (i.e. metal poles deeply inserted into the posterior of individuals, etc). See the documentary,
Paragraph 175, for more information.
