Film screening: 'Paragraph 175'
31st May 2017 @ 07:30pm
‘Paragraph 175’ is an award-winning documentary examining the persecution of homosexuals in Nazi Germany. Between 1933-1945 approximately 100,000 men were arrested for homosexuality in Germany, half of whom were imprisoned. An estimated 10,000 - 15,000 were sent to concentration camps, and by 1945 only 4,000 survived.
“The film is a somber, revealing testament to the gay men and lesbians who, for too long, have been excluded from Holocaust history.”
72 years later and gay men are being imprisoned in Chechnya, Russia. LGBT people in Chechnya suffer forced detention, torture and even murder by the Chechen state.
This is a PAY AS YOU FEEL EVENT. Suggested donation is £5. Pay on the door. ALL profits from this screening will be donated to the Russian LGBT network who are aiding the present situation in Chechnya.
This screening is organised by The People's Film Club.
