    Sachsenhausen Prisoners
    This picture is taken from the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum's archive depicting men in the Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp. Since the picture is taken in black and white it is not possible to determine the color of the inverted triangles on their uniforms, which is why it is impossible to know definitively the status of these people. However, Sachsenhausen was one of the camps that housed homosexuals.

    Dr. Magnus Hirschfeld
    The late 19th century saw the birth of sexology with such prominent names like Krafft-Ebing, Havelock Ellis, and Auguste Forel taking on the question of homosexuality, its nature and origins.  Most concluded that homosexuality is indeed innate and somehow biologically determined.   Many like Freud and Krafft-Ebing continued to describe it as pathological, if not exactly criminal. The pioneering sexologist who broke with this consensus was Dr. Magnus Hirschfeld.
