Please join Florida International University and over 30 co-sponsors for its 8th Annual Holocaust & Genocide Awareness Week (HGAW), a series of 10 on- and off-campus in-person, hybrid, and online events that raise consciousness and impact our lives today. In this era of heightened antisemitism, HGAW2023 engages our community with a range of perspectives on genocide and mass violence and culminates in a campus-wide observance of International Holocaust Remembrance Day. Topics to be addressed include fighting racism, rescue during the Holocaust, gay life under Nazism and after, Jewish identity, prosecution of perpetrators, the ongoing Uyghur Genocide, and more.

The Pink Triangle: Gay Life During and After the Holocaust 3:00PM Central
Following the Nazi takeover of Germany in 1933, some 100,000 men were arrested for the crime of homosexuality as established under paragraph 175 of the German Criminal Code. Thousands of these men were sent to prison, and as many as 15,000 were sent to Nazi concentration camps, where more than 60% were killed. Following the War, gay survivors of the Holocaust were still considered criminals. This special program examines this history and explores its lasting effects on gay and Jewish life into the present.
