'Nazi Persecution Of Homosexuals' Exhibit Comes To KC
The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum's traveling exhibit, Nazi Persecution of Homosexuals 1933-1945 opened at the Dean's Gallery at the Miller Nichols Library at UMKC. Stuart Hinds, head of Special Collections for UMKC libraries, joins us to talk about the exhibit and other events the museum is hosting to accompany the exhibit.
The history of this specific persecution by the Nazis and how homosexuals were viewed before and after the war are explained in the exhibit. While the exhibit is in Kansas City, UMKC is hosting other events to complement this subject including performances by the Heartland Men's Chorus and film viewings about homosexuals living in Nazi Germany.
