The persecution of female homosexuality in Carinthia: 1938-1945

On 8 March, there will be a so-called kick-off event at the university with a historical perspective:
11 am - 1 pm
University Library LV-Lounge Z.2.10
Queer camp stories: The persecution of female homosexuality in Carinthia: 1938-1945
"Homosexuals have only been recognised as victims of National Socialism in Austria since 2005. Only around six per cent of those convicted under § 129Ib StG in Austria during National Socialism were women. The fates of women who were accused, convicted and imprisoned for homosexual offences between 1938 and 1945 have sometimes received little attention from researchers." (From QWien https://www.qwien.at/2023/07/27/neues-forschungsprojekt-zur-verfolgung-weiblicher-homosexualitaet-in-der-ns-zeit/)
Natascha Bobrowsky is a historian at the University of Vienna and started a research project with QWien last year on the stigmatisation and persecution of homosexual women during the Nazi era. For the first time, all accessible files and testimonies from the federal provinces, including Carinthia, will be made visible. The aim is to contextualise (general information on the persecution of homosexuality).
