Gay men were made to wear the pink triangle during the Holocaust. When the concentration camps were built, homosexuals were imprisoned along with Jews and any other groups the Nazis wanted to suppress. In his book “Branded by the Pink Triangle” Ken Setterington documents this persecution of gay men by the Nazis. A mix of historical research, first person accounts, and individual stories bring this time to life for young readers. Stories of bravery in the face of inhuman cruelty, friendship found in the depths of despair in the camps, and the perseverance of the human spirit.⠀
