Starting Thursday, Winnipeg will host an exhibit showing the Nazi persecution of homosexuals. The Rainbow Resource Centre is showcasing the travelling exhibit from the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum to Sept. 9.

Between 1933 and 1945, the Nazi regime promoted racial health policies that sought to eliminate all sources of biological corruption to its dominant "Aryan" race. Among the groups persecuted were homosexual men. The Nazi state arrested and incarcerated tens of thousands in prisons and concentration camps. The Rainbow Resource Centre is partnering with Egale Canada and the Winnipeg Foundation to bring the exhibit here.

The resource centre is a non-profit community organization that provides support and resources to gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer and questioning people and their families. It’s located at 170 Scott St. in Winnipeg. The exhibit is open 1 to 8 p/m. on Monday through Thursday and 1 to 4 p/m. on Friday through Sunday.
