DESIRE PROSECUTED


The Nazi regime increases the severity of the law in the Netherlands: homosexuality is now seen as a threat to the public. A mere suspicion can lead to arrest and prosecution. The little-known fate of Dutch homosexuals is told here through the stories of 5 men and 1 woman. Many of them were in the Resistance. Some were Jewish. All were lesbian, gay or bisexual. Their stories represent the stories of many.
