Berlin Will Build Memorial to Gay Victims of Nazi Regime





The German government announced plans Monday to erect a memorial in Berlin dedicated homosexuals persecuted and killed by the Nazis. The sculpture should be completed this year.

The memorial, to be located in Tiergarten Park, will stand adjacent to the Holocaust Memorial built to honor the lives of the 6 million jews killed under the Nazi regime.

Danish-born Michael Elmgreen and Norwegian Ingar Dragset were selected last year to design the memorial. Their design consists of a large concrete structure with a square opening inside which a film projection will be visible.
