    Overview

    Summary
    Beginning in the 1970s, German and American homosexuals began scrutinizing the past to learn more about gay history. Many found that Adolf Hitler's Germany provided the worst example of anti-homosexual policies run amok. American homosexuals in particular were prone to view this history through the eyes of Nazism's Jewish victims. By the mid-1980s, German homosexuals and historians also began employing and discussing this particular approach as an appropriate means to understand the past. This Master's thesis examines the employment of the Holocaust by some German and American homosexuals as a means to construct a shared historical memory and asks why, despite new historical evidence disputing many central arguments of "gay Holocaust" history, does a comparative framework remain the popular method of viewing the past?
