    From material who's links appear below.
    * I did not know the first mens gay magazine in the world was in pre WW2 Germany.
    * Between 5,000 and 15,000 gay men were interned in concentration camps in Nazi Germany. . This I knew.
    * Gay men suffered unusually cruel treatment in the concentration camps. They had their testicles boiled off by water. I did not know this.
    * SS soldiers also were known to use gay men for target practice, aiming their weapons at the pink triangles. This does not surprise me.
