11 Apr 1945 the Buchenwald concentration camp was liberated by its resistance as US troops arrived. However, many of those interned in camps for homosexuality were not freed by the Allies, but required to serve out the full term of their sentences under the Nazi penal code

@workingclasshistory i'm trying to find more information. do you have any references about this?

@workingclasshistory I have found it: "Between 1945 and 1969, about 100,000 men were indicted and about 50,000 men sentenced to prison."
