Forgotten victims

When we went to the bookshop at Birkenau we asked if there were any
accounts of homosexual victims of the Holocaust. The assistant said
no. Then we saw a book called Forgotten Victims of the Holocaust. I
looked up homosexual in the index and found only one reference in
nearly 400 pages, which was only a list of the different triangles
people in the camps wore. How much more forgotten could they be when
the Auschwitz museum does not record the experiences of thousands of
those who suffered in the holocaust? Kieran
