From Hitler’s torture of homosexuals to contemporary human rights
The aim of the project Berlin-Jogjakarta is to illustrate the oppression of non-heterosexuals during the Nazi occupation of Europe. The name of the exhibition consists of the names of two places from two continents. The Jogjakarta part represents the problems of the present, the Berlin part represents the historical aspect. It was in the German capital that the movement for equality of homosexuals was born. And Berlin was also the place where the Nazi dictatorship decided on the oppression and social exclusion of homosexuals. We want to commemorate the atrocities which the dictatorship of homophobia committed and find out how the international standards for human rights are applied today.
