Germany has inaugurated a 600,000 euro concrete memorial to honour the thousands of homosexuals persecuted by the Nazis between 1933 and 1945. The four-metre high monument, which has a window showing a film of two men kissing, was unveiled in Berlin. The Nazis branded homosexuality an aberration threatening their perception of Germans as the master race, and 55,000 gay men were deemed criminals. As many as 15,000 of those were killed in Nazi concentration camps.
