This book of documents traces the anti-homosexual policies of Germany from 1933 to 1945 and the consequences of these policies. Included are documents dealing with gay men in concentration camps. Grau (Humboldt Univ., Berlin) contributes a seven-page essay on the subject and historian Claudia Schoppmann writes an eight-page essay on "The Position of Lesbian Women in the Nazi Period." Grau notes that this book does not contain every important item on the subject, since some Gestapo and police files were either lost or destroyed near the end of the war. Grau provides some introductions to the documents, but, in the main, the records speak for themselves. This book would be useful in academic libraries with large Holocaust collections.?Dennis L.
