Date(s) - Oct 02, 2022
4:00 pm - 5:00 pm


This LGBTQ+ History Month, the Museum of Jewish Heritage is celebrating the release of Dr. Jake Newsome’s new book Pink Triangle Legacies: Coming Out in the Shadow of the Holocaust. In it, Newsome tells the dynamic and inspiring history of the community’s original pride symbol by tracing the transformation of the pink triangle from a Nazi concentration camp badge into a widespread emblem of queer liberation, pride, and community. Drawing from unexplored archival sources and original interviews, Dr. Newsome showcases the voices of LGBTQ+ Holocaust victims and a rich tapestry of queer lives who found meaning in the pink triangle in a post-Holocaust world.

Attendees will receive a special discount code to purchase the book.

A suggested $10 donation enables the Museum to present programs like this one.
