Memorial to gay Holocaust victims vandalized in Berlin

Posted on 17 Dec 2008 at 6:08pm

BERLIN — Berlin’s memorial to gay victims of the Nazis has been vandalized for the second time in four months.

Berlin police say a window on the outside of the memorial has been broken, probably with a stone.

The window allows visitors to see inside the concrete memorial and view a video of a same-sex couple kissing.

The memorial in Berlin’s Tiergarten park was inaugurated in May and suffered similar damage to the same window in August.

A protest held after that attack to denounce intolerance and homophobia drew more than 100 people including Berlin’s openly gay mayor, Klaus Wowereit.
