Recorded LIVE on Monday, June 28, 2021 at 12:00 AM

DOCUMENTARY – Available on 28, 29, and 30 June 2021 (from midnight on 28th till 11:59 on 30th) Screening in connection with the ‘Paragraph 175 and the Legacies of Anti-Gay Persecution” talkback at 7:00pm on June 29, 2021. Paragraph 175 is an award-winning documentary that sheds light on the persecution of gay people by Nazi Germany through the lives of several men and one woman. Rupert Everett narrates this harrowing documentary about the persecution of homosexuals in the Third Reich, which adds a deeper dimension to Holocaust history. Using an obscure paragraph in Germany's penal code dating back to 1871, the Nazi government arrested gay men, sending them to jail or concentration camps, where they were tortured and murdered. Interviews with aging survivors detail the shift from the social freedoms of the Weimar Republic to the repressive terror imposed by the Nazis. Presented in Partnership with the German Consulate General in Toronto
