According to Brookdale Ally member Jan Boyarin Blundell: Teaching tolerance and understanding of differences is a crucial task in contemporary society. By looking at past abuses, we may hope to change future behavior. This program should be of interest to students, parents and teachers who are involved in combatting bullying.
A compelling lecture will be offered at Brookdale on Thursday, November 15, from 11:30 AM to 1 PM in the Warner Student Life Center. Entitled “The Pink Triangle: Homosexuals in the Nazi Era,” the lecture by Professor of History Emeritus Jack Needle will deal with the treatment of homosexuals during the Holocaust.
We often associate the Nazi persecution with the Jewish people, but many other groups such as Romani people and homosexuals were also deprived of their rights, sent to concentration camps, and murdered.
“The Pink Triangle: Homosexuals in the Nazi Era” is the third in a series of Fall Lectures on World War II.
The program is co-sponsored by the Ally Program and the Center for Holocaust, Human Rights and Genocide Education (Chhange). It will be held in the Student Life Center Navesink III room. There is a nominal fee of $3.00 for attendance.
