We’re back with Part 2 of our episode on Lilly Wust and Felice Schragenheim. When we last left off Lilly – a proud Nazi and wife of a German soldier, had just met Felice – who was an undercover Jew and a Resistance Fighter against Hitler’s evil regime. It was the height of World War 2 in 1942 and Germany was winning.
This week we cover the Pink Triangle and the Nazi persecution of homosexuals. Once a home of vibrant queer progressiveness, Germany dissolved into a dark place of bigotry, anti-semitism and extreme homophobia. We trace Hitler’s dissent of hate from his overthrow of power in 1933 to the end of the war.
