The Nazis' treatment of gay men is not often the focus of Holocaust study, making this exhibition an important part of history. This national exhibit is produced by the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum and presented by the Jewish Community Center of Greater Rochester. The free show features photographs and artwork from the time period as well as historical and personal accounts of how gay men were treated by Nazis from 1933-1945.
