Location Facebook Live
Date Thu, Jun 1, 8:30am - 9:00am
Duration   30m

Berlin was known as the gay capital of the world until Nazis began terrorizing LGBTQ+ people and shut down the Eldorado Club in 1933.

But love persisted in spite of Nazi persecution. Repeated arrests and beatings couldn’t crush the bond between Jewish dancer Margot Holzmann Liu and her partner, Marta Halusa. The inhumane conditions at the Ravensbrück concentration camp didn’t prevent prisoners Nelly Mousset-Vos and Nadine Hwang from beginning their lifelong romance. Join the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum (USHMM) as they commemorate Pride Month with their legacies of resilience and rebellion during Nazi rule.
