Nazi Persecution of Homosexuals 1933-1945
September 15 - October 23, 2005
The Oklahoma Holocaust Remembrance Exhibition was a project of Cimarron Alliance Foundation, supported by community partners including the Jewish Federation of Greater Oklahoma City, The Metropolitan Library System, the Arts Council of Oklahoma City, and several other community and religious organizations.
The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum's traveling exhibit, Nazi Persecution of Homosexuals 1933-1945, examined the police terror that led to the arrest of more than 100,000 men under a broadly interpreted law against homosexuality and the torture and death of many of them. The exhibit of photographs, documents, and artwork, and a companion exhibit, Rescuers: Portraits of Moral Courage in the Holocaust, were offered September 17 through October 23, 2005 at Untitled [ArtSpace] as part of the Oklahoma Holocaust Remembrance Exhibition.
Rescuers: portraits of moral courage
The exhibit Rescuers: Portraits of Moral Courage in the Holocaust featured portraits by Gay Block and narratives by Malka Drucker of people who helped save the lives of Jews in Europe during World War II. Of the 150 portraits of European rescuers from 10 countries, 49 tell the story of their lives before, during, and after the war as they grapple with the question of why they acted with humanity in a time of barbarism.
