The burning library

   
In Berlin's Tiergarten park, a sign points out the former location of Magnus Hirschfeld's Institute for Sexual Research. The building was attacked by the Nazis in 1933, and its entire library was burned in the streets.

Silent vigil

By: Rick Gerharter
   
This memorial pays tribute to the gay men imprisoned in the Sachsenhausen concentration camp in Oranienburg, Germany. One of the earliest of the Nazi camps, Sachsenhausen opened in 1936. It is thought that more than half of its 200,000 prisoners were killed before the camp was liberated in 1945.

Remembering Milk

By: Rick Gerharter
   
After Harvey Milk was inducted into the California Hall of Fame on December 1, 2009, a new exhibit there revealed the contents of an urn that has been interred at Congressional Cemetery since 1987. It contained campaign buttons, government letterhead, a rainbow flag and a film negative of the slain gay rights hero.

Hello to Berlin

By: Rick Gerharter
   
Gay writer Christopher Isherwood lived in this apartment building in Berlin's Schoeneberg District from 1929 to 1933, when the Nazi Party came to power. Isherwood wrote about his experiences as an English teacher in Goodbye to Berlin, which later became the musical Cabaret.

Dirty books

By: Rick Gerharter
   
In 1956, City Lights of San Francisco published gay poet Allen Ginsberg's Howl, a seminal work of the Beat writers. Government officials called it obscene, and the publisher was arrested. The judge ruled the book could not be obscene if it had 'the slightest redeeming social significance.' City Lights continues to publish books on political issues

Never again

By: Rick Gerharter
   
In Berlin’s Nollendorfplatz, a memorial in the shape of a pink triangle commemorates the homosexual victims of the Nazis and the determination never to let it happen again. The bouquet of roses was placed by gay members of the German Social Democratic Party.

Something Wilde

By: Rick Gerharter
   
Irish-born author and playwright Oscar Wilde would probably be amused by the statue erected in his honor in Dublin's Merrion Square. Cheekily called the "Quare in the Square" by locals, the 1997 sculpture seems to get the last laugh.

See you in September

By: Clint Steib
   
In the 1970s, the abandoned piers at the end of New York City's Christopher Street were an 'urban wilderness' where gay men cruised for sex. Today they have been transformed into manicured parks where the next generation comes to sunbathe.

Gay history

By: Rick Gerharter
   
This patch of green in the middle of San Francisco doesn't feel like a traditional memorial. But Pink Triangle Park, at the intersection of 17th and Castro Streets, is a place of "remembrance, reflection and education" about the gays killed by the Nazis during the Holocaust.
Jun '09    Gay History
By: Michael Thompson
   
Built in 1987, Amsterdam's Homomonument sits on the edge of the Keizersgracht, one of the city's prettiest canals. Honoring gays brutalized by the Nazis in World War II, it's made up of three triangles of pink granite, which symbolically point to the past, present, and future.
