In 2008, a monument was erected in Berlin to commemorate gay victims of the Nazi regime. Architecturally, it borrows from the Holocaust memorial directly across the street, but it’s much smaller, and contains a continuously looping video showing two men kissing.
The video sparked a heated controversy that continues to this day, though not involving the parties you might expect. Vox Tablet brings us the story on Monday.
