Holocaust Center for Humanity presents an exhibit on 'Nazi Persecution of Homosexuals' alongside a contemporary photo essay 'Where Love is Illegal'

This fall, the Henry and Sandra Friedman Holocaust Center for Humanity hosts two traveling exhibits, 'Nazi Persecution of Homosexuals, 1933-1945' and 'Where Love is Illegal' in an ongoing story of persecution and resistance.

'Nazi Persecution of Homosexuals 1933-1945' is a traveling exhibition produced by the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. Through reproductions of historic photographs and documents, this exhibition explores the rationale, means, and impact of the Nazi regime's persecution of homosexuals, which left thousands dead and shattered the lives of many more.

'Where Love is Illegal' is an exhibit of Robbin Hammond's evocative photo project which tells the story of LGBTQ persecution today, taking an in-depth look at contemporary instances of abuse and intolerance faced by LGBTQI people around the world. The photos are accompanied by the subjects' first-hand stories of discrimination, survival, and hope.

The exhibits will be on display September 11-October 31, on Wednesdays and Sundays from 10:00am-4:00pm (last admission at 3:30pm). (The museum will be closed Sunday, September 5 and Wednesday, October 12.)

The Center is located at 2045 2nd Avenue - on the corner of 2nd Avenue and Lenora St. Reservations are required for all exhibits at the Center and can be made online at www.HolocaustCenterSeattle.org or by calling 206-582-3000. General Admission: Adult - $10 suggested donation; Student & Senior - $5 suggested donation.

For security reasons all bags are subject to search and weapons of any type are strictly prohibited in the museum, including guns, knives (even pocket knives), and pepper spray.

Special thanks to our sponsors: Gilman Family Foundation | Pride Foundation | Greater Seattle Business Association | Carter Subaru | 1st Security Bank | Congregation Tikvah Chadashah | LifeLong AIDS Alliance.



The Holocaust Center for Humanity encourages visitors to take action against injustice and stand up for the rights of all people. 'The Holocaust is the story of persecution not only of Jews, but of gay men, Roma and Sinta (gypsies), Jehovah's Witnesses, the disabled - anyone the Nazis deemed 'inferior,' said Baral Family Executive Director Dee Simon. 'We use these stories and lessons from the Holocaust as a teaching tool to inspire students to speak out against intolerance and hatred in their own communities.'

About the Center
Connecting lessons of the Holocaust to a broad range of relevant themes for our time, from bullying to social justice, the Holocaust Center for Humanity teaches students to become engaged citizens and to speak out against bigotry and prejudice. The Center works with teachers, students, and community groups across the Northwest to provide educational materials, curriculum, and interaction with local Holocaust survivors who tell their stories to 20,000 students of all ages each year. In 2015, the Center opened its museum to the public. 17,000 visitors toured exhibits during the 2015-2016 school year.

The Center's mission is to inspire teaching and learning for humanity in the schools and communities of this region through study of the Holocaust. Find out more at HolocaustCenterSeattle.org.
