Holocaust Memorial Day
2009-01-27
Today January 27th is the offical Holocaust Memorial Day, which I celebrate and pay tribute to the homosexual men that were massacred during the Nazi Holocaust.
The original title of this piece is:
In Erinnerung von den Homosexuellen Männern während der Nazistischen Massenvernichtung
(The Forgotten: In memory of the homosexual men during the Nazi Holocaust).

This installation pays tribute to the homosexual men during the Nazi Holocaust. So far I
handcrafted around 240 individual pieces using a press mold and my ultimate goal for this
on going project, is to continue and mass produce around 15,000 + to simulate the number
of homosexual men that were massacred at the concentration camps.
