6 May 1933 Nazis raided the Institute of Sex Research in Berlin. It was a pioneering org which supported gay and trans rights, and equality for women. It employed numerous trans workers and pioneered gender affirmation surgery. Its library was then burned

@workingclasshistory this was the first nazi book burning, and the root of the modern anti-trans movement

scratch a terf, find a fascist

@workingclasshistory All my life my parents always nodded in agreement that book burning was bad, never knowing that they totally would have burned books like these had they known.
