Frankfurt am Main in Frankfurt, Hessen, Germany
Frankfurter Engel / Angel of Frankfurt
Die Verbrechen wurden geleugnet, die Getöteten verschwiegen, die Überlebenden verachtet und verurteilt
Daran erinnern wir in dem Bewusstsein, dass Männer, die Männer lieben, und Frauen, die Frauen lieben, immer wieder verfolgt werden können
Frankfurt am Main
[English translation, courtesy of Wikipedia:]
Homosexual men and women were persecuted and murdered in Nazi Germany.
The crimes were denied, the dead concealed, the survivors scorned and prosecuted.
We remember this, in the awareness that men who love men and women who love women still face persecution.

1. Persecution of homosexuals in Nazi Germany and the Holocaust (Wikipedia). Upon the rise of Adolf Hitler and the National Socialist German Workers Party (the Nazi Party) in Germany, gay men and, to a lesser extent, lesbians, were two of the numerous groups targeted by the Nazis and were ultimately among Holocaust victims. Beginning in 1933, gay organizations were banned, scholarly books about homosexuality, and sexuality in general, (such as those from the Institut für Sexualwissenschaft, run by Jewish gay rights campaigner Magnus Hirschfeld) were burned, and homosexuals within the Nazi Party itself were murdered.
