Other faces of the holocaust by RedOut Other faces of the holocaust by RedOut
Though the jewish community gets most of the sympathy for the holocaust, they werent the only ones in the camps. Most of these people were given a symbol of identification, coloured triangles. Some of these symbols went on to represent the group of people after the holocaust (homosexuals, for example)

Red: Political prisoner, often a communist or socialist that is not a nazi.

Pink: Homosexual

Brown: Sometimes used for undesirables or antisocials (like non-comformists) instead of black triangle, which was sometimes reserved for lesbians.

Purple: Jehova's whitness

Blue: Emigrant

Black: Antisocial

Green: Criminals

Yellow: Jew, 2 triangles used to form a star of david, this second star can be combined with any of the other triangles to form the star if they happen to be jewish too.

I felt like doing something informative, so here it is.

Actually, Pink was not just for homosexuals. Pink was at actually for sexual offenders that also included Rapists and Pedophiles. Brown was later given to the Gypsies, Black was "work shy" which included alcoholics, drug addicts, Lesbians, prostitutes and the like. And there is also the Red UnInverted triangle which was reserved for POW, spies and deserters.

Thanks for showing there were others who died in the Holocaust. They all should be remembered.

I know Hitler is a Bastard but I hate how everyone hates the Germans for what he did. Earlier they were under his Control, mostly because they were Scared...but why do they call every German nowadays a Nazi? I mean...That's just mean.

What happened was shit though, I had ancestors who were Nazis and I had Ancestors who had died in Holocaust for many different reasons. I can't understand how they would think of doing something this cruel.

One famous Axis WWII general was a german patriot who hated hitler's plans.
