The Life of Pierre Seel: Remembering the forgotten LGBT + victims of the holocaust

LGBT+ History Month / The Life of Pierre Seel: Remembering the forgotten LGBT + victims of the holocaust

The University of Wolverhampton presents a talk with journalist Andrea Carlo which was recorded on 16th February 2021.

In the midst of LGBT History Month and the enduring struggle for equality around the world, it is vital to remember one of the most tragic, yet overlooked, episodes in queer history: the persecution and murder of thousands of LGBT+ people during the Third Reich. In this talk, journalist Andrea Carlo will look at the life of Pierre Seel, one of the few gay Holocaust survivors to speak openly about his experience, and his poignant testimony of life during and after imprisonment in a concentration camp.

Andrea Carlo (he/him) is a British-Italian journalist and commentator on human rights issues, contributing regularly to publications such as The Independent and HuffPost. He is also a PhD candidate researching the history of Euroscepticism in Italy.
