Artist's Description

4 May 2012 – Every year in the Netherlands the victims of World War II are commemorated. But not only the victims of World War II are commemorated. Also victims of intolerance and wars since 1945.

We have been to The Hague to attend this annual ceremony. The ceremony we attended was held at the International Gay Monument, where also a delegation from the Police Academy, Ministry of Security & Justice and the Municipality of The Hague were represented.

Besides millions of Jews there are many gay men and women killed in extermination camps during the Second World War. After the war, homosexuality was still prohibited by law. So, many liberated homosexual victims were put in prison again. In lots of countries nothing has changed. Caught by the law or by social exclusion!

It was a very impressive ceremony!
