According to Gay rights activists, the Nazis targeted homosexuals during the holocaust in a way comparable to the Jewish population.

In fact, homosexuals were not exterminated as Jews were. Although approximately 100,000 men were arrested for homosexuality, out of an estimated homosexual population of one million.[1][2], only about 5,000 to 15,000 of these were interned in concentration camps. According to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, "Nazi Germany did not seek to kill all homosexuals. . . [but] the Nazi state, through active persecution, attempted to terrorize German homosexuals into sexual and social conformity".[2]

Nazi treatment of homosexuals

Due to the scarcity of records, it is unknown how many of these died in the camps' harsh conditions, though one historian has estimated the death rate to have been as high as 60%.[1] Other homosexuals were castrated by court order, or forcibly implanted with testosterone capsules in a medical attempt to "cure" them.[1] A special division of the Gestapo (Secret State Police) had been set up in 1934, specifically to identify and arrest homosexuals.[1]

Homosexual Nazis

In his book, "The Pink Swastika," Lively exposes a secret homosexual activists don't want you to know about Nazi Germany: that although the Nazis did persecute homosexuals, the homosexuals the Nazis persecuted were almost exclusively the effeminate members of the gay community in Germany, and that much of the mistreatment was administered by masculine homosexuals who despised effeminacy in all its forms.
