Summary"This teaching resource facilitates student engagement with historical context, photograph and primary source document replication, and testimonies featured in the Nazi Persecution of Homosexuals 1933–1945 exhibition... All lessons can be readily adaptable for younger age
groups by summarizing readings. An investigation of primary source material fosters historical and critical thinking skills in students. This guide complements class visits to the 90-minute interactive exhibit tour and workshop, and is divided into two sections. Support materials are provided at the end of each lesson. The pre-visit lessons explore the history of homophobia and homosexuality in the Western World, and introduces students to the rich social and cultural communities created by gay men and women during the Weimar Republic, 1919–1933. Post-visit exercises address thematic issues raised during the school program, and encourage students to make connections between the oppression of gay men and, to a lesser extent, women, in Nazi Germany and issues affecting the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Questioning/Queer (LGBTQ) community around the globe in 2013."
