Description: 

Branded by the Pink Triangle
Before the rise of the Nazi party, Germany, especially Berlin, was one of the most tolerant places for homosexuals in the world. But that all changed when the Nazis came to power. When the concentration camps were built, homosexuals were imprisoned along with Jews and the pink triangle sewn onto prison uniforms became the symbol of the persecution of homosexuals. A mix of historical research, first-person accounts and individual stories brings this time to life for young readers. Stories of bravery, friendship and the perseverance of the human spirit will educate and inspire.
