    I thought this might be of interest to some people who haven't seen it before.
    Rudolf Brazda, the last known "pink triangle" survivor of the Nazi concentration camps tells his story.

    Coyler - once I got past the annoying web ad of 8 seconds, the content of Rudolf's story is tremendously moving. And timely, given that it's LGBT History Month.

    I'm sharing this on Facebook on my organization's FB page.
    Thanks for putting this out there. It's not often that stories about the estimated 5-15,000 gay and transgender prisoners that were killed during WWII get told. And, given that Rudolf might be the last, having his video online is most definitely a gem in the making.

    How great to see that someone, however much of an exception he may have been, was able to carry on a happy life after all that. Thanks for posting.
