Lillis place for rants and musing about life, universe and the whole rest. Mostly left, mostly sarcastic, sometimes in german, sometimes in Lilli-english.

As you might see soon, english is not my mothertongue. And since english speaking people are used to others stumble around in their language, I hope I don't make too much of an idiot of myself here. So - my deepest apologies adressed to the English Language for not worshipping her better.

Gay Nazi victims
When I see sometimes how some priests and bishops start to talk about Homosexuals, I start frightening, because there was a time in Germany, where the words "mentally ill", "re-orientation" and so, were used in a way none of us wants to have to see.
Next to Jews and Gypsies there also were lots of Homosexuals who where brought into Concentration Camps. While Jews had to wear a yellow star, the Homosexuals (mostly men) had to wear a pink triangle.
It's said they were really at the deepest step of the social ladder in a concentration camp.
Now there are plans to build a memorial for the homosexual people who were brought into the Concentration Camp.
But it wouldn't change some people's mind that Homosexuality is still something against nature, something sinful and something that must be "cured" somehow. I hope, society is nowadays so far, that also this part of the Horror around WWII won't happen ever again.
